Jason’s Law truck parking survey now open

From FreightWaves.

The Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is now seeking truck drivers for a survey on truck parking.

The survey is an update to the Jason’s Law Truck Parking survey conducted in 2015. This survey was mandated by MAP-21, the last major transportation bill. The site says the survey should only take five to seven minutes to complete with responses anonymized and aggregated.

It is available online here.

According to the survey, it is “intended to update the 2015 evaluation of the capability of the States to provide adequate parking and rest facilities for commercial motor vehicles engaged in interstate transportation.”

The last government study on truck parking was completed in 2015. The Jason’s Law Truck Parking Survey found that parking shortages are a nationwide problem, with 37 state DOTs (72.5%) reporting they had problems with truck parking.
