bill that eventually became the Jason's
Law Truck Parking Survey.
Senate support for Jason's Law
originally came from Senators Charles
Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both
from New York State.
The Jason's Law Survey
Both houses of Congress adopted
Jason's Law as part of Moving Ahead
for Progress in the 21st Century
(MAP-21) on October 1, 2012. The

law required the U.S. Department of
Transportation to conduct a survey of
truck parking facilities across all
50 states.
The survey aimed to answer three
basic goals:
* Determine the adequacy of truck
parking and rest facilities in each
state.
* Assess commercial truck traffic in
each state.

Other stakeholders brought into the
process included travel plaza and truck
stop owners and operators, including
the National Association of Truck Stop
Operators, as well as trucking company
managers, logistics experts, truck
drivers and experts from the American
Trucking Associations (ATA).
The survey confirmed the trucking
industry's longtime contention that
truck parking was utterly inadequate.
Here are the survey's major findings:

National in Scope, Regional in Service

t Drop off refused products

* Develop a way to measure
the adequacy of truck parking
provisions in each state.
To organize the massive surveying
project, the USDOT's Federal Highway
Administration (FHWA) drew on public
and private expertise to communicate
with stakeholders from each state's
transportation department and
commercial motor carrier officials.

8/16/16 4:25 PM

* Most states reported that shortages
of truck parking created problems
for drivers.
* States reported more shortages
in public parking facilities than in
private lots.
* The most severe parking challenges
exist in the Mid-Atlantic region,
the East-North Central region, New
England and the Southeast.
* Despite the reported shortages,
drivers said that the available
parking was adequate in many
areas. The problem was inefficient
use - drivers didn't know where the
available spaces were.
* Private truck stop owners reported
that most facilities offer fewer than
100 parking spaces. Most are filled
at night and some during the day.
* A number of owners reported a
desire to add parking, but lacked
authority, amenable zoning laws
and sufficient funding.
The report went on to say that many
truckers dealt with shortages by
finding alternative parking spaces,
including slots on expressway
interchange ramps.
How many drivers find themselves
forced to deal with inadequate parking
