About I-83 Parking On The Shoulder Citation For Truck Drivers

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012
Just this month, the Maryland State Police announced  they will be aggressively giving out ticketing of trucks parked on the Shoulder of I-83. The fine for parking on the shoulder for trucks is $70.

Truck Drivers that are out of available hours of service cannot be forced to move trucks after the citation is issued.

This new I-83 Parking on The Shoulder policy makes it clear to all truck drivers that they should plan in advance where to park when they need a break.

The ban on parking on the shoulder was made because shoulder parking of trucks leads to extremely dangerous conditions because there’s insufficient truck parking in Maryland. In fact, there are no truck parking facilities along I-83 in Baltimore County. To learn about the I-83 Parking on the Shoulder click here.
