Driver opinions sought on delivery of parking info


The American Transportation Research Institute wants to know how drivers prefer to learn about available truck parking through automated information systems.

ATRI surveyed drivers on this topic at the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville last month. More than 300 drivers completed surveys.

ATRI said in a statement that the lack of available truck parking continues to rank as a top issue in its annual industry survey. Parking was the second-ranked issue for drivers in 2018 after the hours-of-service rules.

The institute said research findings will provide states and private sector entities providing truck parking information with the driver-preferred data formats and methods of information delivery.

ATRI will collect driver responses on the truck parking survey through the end of May.
