SC&RA Encourages Participation in Jason’s Law Survey Update
(December 5, 2018)
- Make your voice heard once again by participating in the Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) survey on truck parking, available here
The survey is an update to the Jason’s Law Truck Parking survey conducted in 2015. SC&RA participated in this Coalition and was successful in advocating final recommendations that included specific language acknowledging the unique challenges of the specialized transportation industry. 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.
Jason’s Law was named after truck driver Jason Rivenburg who was killed in a robbery. He was parked for the evening in an abandoned gas station after arriving too early for a delivery in South Carolina.
