Commercial Vehicle Parking in California: Exploratory Evaluation of the Problem and Possible Technology-Based Solutions
Because of lack of private and public parking for commercial vehicles, more trucks are parking illegally on ramps and shoulders and truck driver fatigue is increasing. Both are causing more safety hazards and crashes. In response to these problems, the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) authorizes $25 million dollars for the establishment of the Truck Parking Facilities Pilot Program. This project is a four-part study, building on PATH project, "Strategies for Linking Trucking and Smart Parking Technologies."
