Knotty Potty Problem

The closed rest areas at Gaviota are a large problem! The lanes are blocked off, and no traffic can enter so that drivers can get to the bathrooms. Most regular truckers have come to rely on the stops going north and south.

Closing these rest areas for a year is unconscionable. Preposterous. Unthinkable!

We must all demand action. Open the rest areas!
