Results of an American Transportation Research Institute survey of truck parking availability systems in use by truckers points to the need for more accurate systems and the standardization of these systems across state lines.

ATRI survey points to the need for a nationwide truck parking availability system

So again, as I said before, they will take all the money allotted for truck parking and waste it all on studies and signs rather than paving paradise to put up a parking lot. FFS, we dont need more worthless signs telling us that available spots 55 miles ahead are LOW, a Lot can change in 30-60 minutes. WE NEED MORE CONCRETE, not worthless technology. Even if their electronic sign says full, if I need a spot I'm still gonna pull in and try to make a spot. If I glanced at it correctly less than 10 percent (6.something) liked the sign idea. I use trucker path and love it but only use it for location not for availability. Even if it says lot is full I still pull in and always manage to score a spot. Parking is always changing, someones always leaving at all hours of the day and night. Those signs they put up generally only show for the truck only spits with no bathrooms. I never park there. Hope they dont waste the money on studies and signs but also, again as usual, it appears that's their intention. I find that sad.
