One more state to allow truck parking at weigh stations during COVID-19 crisis

Officials in Georgia say that truckers are welcome to park and rest at weigh station locations as they deliver supplies during the Coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday, the Georgia Department of Public Safety announced that “all Georgia Weigh Stations are open for CMV drivers to pull in, park and rest.”

MCCD is here to assist CMV drivers. All Georgia Weigh Stations are open for CMV drivers to pull in, park and rest. Please do your part and get rest, stay alert and drive safely. #gamccd

Since the Coronavirus pandemic struck, some states like Pennsylvania have made truck parking more difficult by temporarily shutting down rest areas (most have since reopened), but other states are taking action to support trucking by opening up facilities for parking.

Indiana, Virginia, and Missouri are also allowing semi truck parking at weigh stations.

Arizona reopened two rest area locations that were closed for more than a decade to provide parking, hand washing stations, and portable restrooms for truck drivers only.
