MAG's truck parking study evaluates the existing commercial truck parking demand in the region and the anticipated impacts of the new Electronic Logging Device (ELD) regulations. Long haul truckers need a safe, secure place to park that is accessible from the interstates and have access to essential services. The ELD regulations reduce the number of miles a trucker can drive in a day. This may force the driver to stop in rest areas that are not familiar and lack adequate parking. The regulations can force the driver to park along an interstate off-ramp or on a residential street, which may create a dangerous situation for both the driver and residents. MAG works with ADOT, the Arizona Trucking Association, and MAG member agencies to create safe solutions for both the truck drivers and residents.
