“The Road is Our Workplace” is a campaign for safe parking places for long-haul drivers to check loads and rest.

The road is our workplace.

A lack of safe places to park means that it is very difficult to check our loads and get the rest we need to stay sharp behind the wheel.

We don’t want to “drive tired”. Help support long-haul drivers in our call for more parking and a provincial plan to address the shortage.

We demand:

  1. Immediate action should be taken by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario to begin to resolve the parking shortage.
  2. Set targets for new truck parking.
  3. Priority for added parking, particularly at ONroute Service Centres.
