Diamond Rio to headline at Walcott Truckers Jamboree concertComment
The cost of parking in truck stops is becoming a problem. There are less free spots and in some states you can’t park on ramps. I was in Mt Vernon Ill. this week and stopped at the TA there to park for seven hours. The cost was $24.00. with the high cost of fuel and the time restraints put on truckers its a wonder anyone want to continue driving. Products need to be delivered but truckers are not respected for the job they do. I will not be stopping at TA’s since they are becoming so greedy that they will have you arrested if you don’t pay these outrageous fee. Is there anyone advocating for us truckers out here?
