Echo: Minnesota Tests New Technology To Help Truckers

Truckers are required to stop for a rest to maintain safety, but limited parking makes the task hard on drivers. Minnesota may have found a solution to the problem.

The state’s Department of Transportation is testing technology that will let truck drivers know if parking is available at the next rest stop. Testing starts this month with one rest area along I-94, and is expected to expand to the other rest stops once testing is completed in April.
