On December 1st, 2022, a piece of legislation was introduced to alleviate stress on supply chain as it is expected to boost highway safety. The Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act would authorize $755 million in competitive grant funding to expand commercial truck parking capacity across the U.S. The Senate bill establishes new funding eligibility criteria, including considerations for drivers' personal safety. The lack of safe parking options is often cited as a serious deterrent to more women joining the industry. The bill also would make routine maintenance expenses eligible for funding, as state transportation officials often cite maintenance costs as a deterrent to expanding parking capacity.
Parking shortage, according to industry sources, is having a costly, measurable impact on supply chain efficiency, as well as in driver health/wellbeing, highway safety, and ultimately, the environment.
The following facts were some of the considerations that triggered the initiative:
Safety in our roadways is of paramount importance, and so is maintaining the wellbeing of our truck drivers across the country to keep our families and everyone safe while on the move.
Besides taking all the necessary steps to stay safe, truck drivers and business operators must have proper insurance coverage at all times.
