  1. When are these states going to get it through their heads that truck drivers need to use a proper rest room? Portable toilets don’t offer sanitary conditions. Would they want to eat out of a vending machine? I don’t think so. But hey let’s get your load delivered and continue putting your health at risk. IF TRUCKS STOP MOVING AMERICA STOP !!!
