Truck parking situation no better for drivers

As the demand for truck parking spaces increases along the nation’s heavily traveled highways, states continue to vie for federal money to help address those woes. Drivers may be heartened to learn that relief is on the drawing board, but want to know what they’re supposed to do in the meantime. This has been a problem for many years, and it will only continue to get worse.
States need to get on the ball and start updating there rest areas, and building new ones, preferably truck friendly.
Unless you get into a rest area or Truck Stop before dark chances are you are not going to find a decent, and safe place to park for the night. Truck stops need to be updated as well, I know they are working on it. But geesh we are not still in the 80's here.
