Truck-Stops

With driver fatigue becoming a fatal hazard on our roads, trucking companies are insisting that their drivers take a break when they are feeling tired. Driving overnight or for a number of hour’s non-stop is difficult for the human body.
 
Hence, the friendly and safe truck-stop is the best place to park off and cool down so that you are fresh for the next leg of your journey. The typical truck-stop has become the answer to many truckers stopping off in nearby towns on national roads or parking illegally on the emergency lanes to take some rest overnight. Most of the truckers also use open spaces or side roads to park their trucks. This in turn has led to higher crime rates and hijacking that could have been avoided had the driver used a truck stop.
 
The truck-stop should include restrooms and restaurants that are open 24 hours a day so that exhausted drivers can fuel up their body and mind with energy snacks while also fuelling up the truck. Ablution facilities should be clean, with showers and facilities for truckers to wash their clothes. There must also be recreational facilities on site so as to provide a break, and to help drivers interact with other drivers.
 
Some facilities offer other added value like roadside wellness clinics. The aim is to promote HIV/Aids awareness and offer tests for sexually transmitted infections. They also provide general medical attention and some go even further by providing toiletry bags containing personal toiletries.
