As truck drivers navigate America’s highways, something as simple as safe and convenient parking can be difficult to find.To address the need, Iowa has joined seven other Midwest states in a pilot program creating an information system to help bridge the gap between truck drivers and safe parking spaces.Brenda Neville, president and chief executive of the Iowa Motor Truck Association, said a lack of safe parking is a significant issue for everyone on the road, not just in Iowa, but the industry nationwide.“At the end of the day this all comes down to safety,” Neville said.
