The American Transportation Research Institute is looking to collect real-world information on the daily situations and challenges truck drivers face in locating safe parking, ATRI announced March 21.
ATRI is recruiting drivers who will keep a 14-day “diary” of their truck parking issues. The diaries ask drivers to record daily stops that relate to fuel and food stops, their 30-minute rest break and the mandated 10-hour break. Drivers will record the time and location of their stops, how long it took to find a parking space and other information about the location, amenities and why the driver chose it.
Drivers interested in participating should visit the ATRI website to complete a prequalifying survey, or visit ATRI’s booth #40577 at the Mid-America Trucking Show next week. Selected drivers will be contacted by email to obtain the diary. The first 100 participants to return their completed diary will receive a $50 Visa gift card.
