    Jason Rivenburg tried to park at on his customers property the night before his delivery, but they wouldn't let him so he had to find another place. At that time of night the truck stops were full, if there were any around.

    The parking problem is one I see a LOT and it is only getting worse as more rest areas are closing and communities are not allowing new truck stops.

    Yay HOAs, scourge of the earth.

    Even Wal-Mart used to offer RVs a place to stay overnight, but the neighborhoods and communities banded together to oust these evil people wanting a safe place to park their RV while on the road.

    It isn't just the HOA's though. Take Sumner, WA for example. A guy opened up a small truck stop there about a year ago, then expanded the parking some. The city passed a bill that banned parking of commercial vehicles ANYWHERE in the city, including private property. Luckily the law hadn't gone into effect before it was overturned. If it had taken effect it would have shut down the truck stop, several warehouses including a Costco distribution center, a terminal for a large trucking company and even a mom and pop sod farm. All so they could stop ONE truck stop. And the killer is that the truck stop isn't anywhere near any houses.

    In our neighborhood, a rig was frequently parked in the driveway of a house across the street from the elementary school. The trucker came home one day a few weeks ago, shot his wife in the leg, then killed himself. The house remains empty. The wife survived, but did not want to go back. The truck was still there until a few days ago. Ten year old son witnessed it all, and called 911. Very tragic. She wanted a divorce. I guess he didn't.
