In an effort to collect information to combat the truck parking shortage, the U.S. DOT is updating the truck parking survey they released more than three years ago. The U.S. Department of Transportation has issued its second version of the Jason’s Law Truck Parking Survey and is encouraging truckers to participate.
The truck parking survey should take approximately five to seven minutes to complete. No personally identifying information is collected, and if provided, it will not be identified when the Federal Highway Administration analyzes results. All responses will be anonymized and aggregated.
According to Andrew King, research assistant for the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association’s Foundation, most of the participants in the first version of the truck parking survey were OOIDA members. OOIDA encourages the members to take the updated survey to make sure issues specific to owner-operators are accurately and fairly represented.
The truck parking survey is intended to evaluate of the capability of the states to provide adequate parking and rest facilities for commercial motor vehicles engaged in interstate transportation. It is important for federal authorities to learn about waht professional drivers are experience with truck parking.
