Shoulder Parking Slobs

I've been seeing a lot of trucks parking on the shoulder lately and they all have trashboards (dashboards full of trash). None of them had their 4-ways on or cones out. I'm sure at least half of the trucks parked with their 4-ways on and the hood open aren't actually broken down anyways. Then they merge back into traffic going 10mph and you can't get around them because of the trucks that sit in the left lane all day or walls of cars that are all tailgating. Hopefully highway patrol starts ticketing these slobs for illegally parking. I've seen people complain about the off or on ramp parking trucks on here, but obviously these shoulder parking jerkoffs deserve the most hate.

Yeah, there will always be abusers of anything related to driving. Don’t be too harsh with the ones you don’t like. Maybe they just needed a shoulder to cry on. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist)

Bruce coming in strong with the puns 😂

Idk, if they’ve got their hood open I imagine they’re broke down lol but I completely agree about the people that just pull off on the shoulder of the interstate for trivial reasons. The kicker is there’s often an exit or a truckstop within sight where they could have taken the shoulder of an on ramp which is quite a bit safer. The shoulder should be reserved for break downs and emergencies

I notice this mostly with the Amazon contractors. They'll park just past the exit, or past the on ramp with their high beams on. It drives me crazy. Atleast pull off on the dang ramp or rest stop that was right there. If that 30 seconds to a minute extra to pull off the roadway makes you late for your delivery you have bigger problems. Besides, if you choose an on ramp you can often use the decline to help you build your speed back up quicker than starting on flat ground.


When a violation by either a driver or company is confirmed, an out-of-service order removes either the driver or the vehicle from the roadway until the violation is corrected.
