Truckers delivering essential goods struggle to find bathrooms and rest stops

The coronavirus is adding stress to truckers delivering essential goods throughout the U.S. as they struggle to find bathrooms and rest stops to grab a bite to eat and take a nap. Many truck stops are closed to anything except filling up for fuel, and signs hanging from locked doors say that ’no coffee or water’ or ’no bathrooms’ are available.

Some states making weigh stations available for rest stops, weight limits and hours somewhat relaxed, temporary waiver allows food trucks at rest areas (with permit), some places offering free coffee for truckers, some reports of volunteers offering free meals. Alas, scoundrels stealing TP from restrooms.

I took the time and effort to submit various other quality links about trucker challenges - none of which appear the next afternoon. Waste of my time, frustrated with Newsvoice moderation/filtering, less inclined to contribute. (:-(

Some company like Coleman should step up and give truckers portable toilets or sell them at cost.

The government should step in and provide some type of safe toilets and food. Maybe National guard. It's obvious we need supply, During crisis. It's not a game we need to be organized and practical. The companies Playing the toilet game are just dumb. I guess we need them for gas, but they should be publicly named, get some fines or something.
