The road is our workplace. A lack of safe places to park means that it is very difficult to check our loads and get the rest we need to stay sharp behind the wheel.
We don't want to "drive tired". Help support long haul and regional drivers in our call for more parking and a provincial plan to address the shortage.
- The provincial Ministry of Transportation should take immediate action to begin to resolve the parking shortage.
- Set targets for new truck parking.
- Priority for added parking spaces that include the services drivers require as well as the expectation of security for the drivers and their trucks/freight.
