The Coalition brings together stakeholders from the public sector, transportation organizations, the freight industry, and other groups to advance safe truck parking to:
Truck parking capacity is a nationwide problem. Continued growth in truck traffic is outpacing the supply of public and private parking facilities needed for driver rest, decreasing safety for truck drivers and other vehicles on the road. Safety is the FHWA's top priority, and helping to ensure that commercial drivers have a safe place to rest is part of that goal. USDOT, in collaboration with major stakeholders engaged in truck parking, established the Coalition in August 2015 in response to the "Jason's Law Truck Parking Survey Results and Comparative Analysis."
