The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) is taking a survey, targeted to truck drivers, designed to identify and analyze truck parking issues in North Carolina. The brief online survey seeks important information from drivers on where, why, and when they park at locations throughout the Tar Heel State. It also seeks information on how truck parking can be improved at both private truck stops and public rest areas.
The survey effort is sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation, and the information will become an important input to freight planning throughout the state.
Commercial drivers who operate in the southeastern U.S. are encouraged to provide their truck parking insights and information through ATRI's survey by Friday, Nov. 18. The survey is available online at www.atri-online.org.
All individual survey responses will be kept confidential, ATRI emphasizes. The results of this study will be available later this year.
