Josh Whelan started this petition to UK Parliament

A truck driver was killed after hitting a truck parked in a layby. Truckers have limited time to drive,and have to park somewhere for the night or day. Motorway service areas charge up to £30.00 for the privilege of crap food and cold shower( If working at all!) And a some companies won't pay for this. So the driver has to park in lay-bys and Industrial estates and risking their lives/ loads/ diesel etc... We are urging the government to sort out somewhere for our truckers to park safely, and freely in this country. Places like Germany/France/Spain etc...All have free parking for trucks, Why can't we?  Everything we own has been in a truck at some point. Even everything we use will have been in a truck, (for example you use a bus to get to work, you can guarantee some of the materials used to manufacture that bust were in a truck at some point. Supportthe truckers that deliver stuff for you to enjoy.COVID19 has shown what key workers truck drivers are, let's treat them as such! Weather the government makes free safe parking available for customers, or makes it a legal requirement for companies to cover the cost. Safe parking should be provided and not at the expense of the trucker. Thanks for reading respect.
