ATA Supports ‘Jason’s Law'

The American Trucking Association has reaffirmed its support for legislation that would provide federal funding for commercial vehicle parking at rest areas.

“Jason’s Law” was drafted after truck driver Jason Rivenburg was killed in March 2009 at an abandoned gas station in South Carolina.

The legislation was introduced into the House of Representatives last May by Rep. Paul Tonko (D-NY). Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) introduced a companion bill in the Senate. The legislation would provide funds for building new rest areas and expanding and improving existing ones, ATA said in a release.

ATA Senior Vice President Dave Osiecki said that rest areas would allow truck drivers to safely and effectively follow hours-of-service regulations and get off the road when they are tired.
