Smart TruckingThere are several things a truck owner, owner operator can do at a truck stop, to protect their truck from damage.
A large percentage of truck accidents occur in the parking lots of truck stops. Large tractor trailers moving around without any hard and fast rules for traffic flow and stopping. Trucks and trailers backing up and moving around at random is grounds for a lot of potential damage to equipment.
This can be particularly detrimental for the owner operator and independent trucker. If a truck sustains damage to the front end, it can cause rad, engine or essential component damage, so the vehicle cannot operate..... much more serious than cosmetic damage.
