Introducing the Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act

Bill: The Truck Parking Safety Improvement Act
Rep. Bost grew up in a family trucking business and spent years driving on the road. “Since then, we’ve seen the need for more trucks and drivers increase significantly, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic when trucking helped to keep our economy going,” he says. “However, the number of truck parking spaces hasn’t kept pace. That means that drivers are forced to park in unsafe locations, which puts both them and other motorists at risk.”
Rep. Bost’s bill would address this concern by establishing a set-aside source of funding from existing U.S. Department of Transportation funding to create more parking spots.
