If it wasn't for our trucker's out there, away from home and family, this country would stop running. Yet some places feel the need to scam them and as a result make their jobs all that much more difficult. It's hard enough as it is.
Below is a copy of a complaint sent to various U.S. Government agencies, news offices and even television stations. People need to be made aware of this as it keeps happening. Everywhere!
Approximately 1 am on October 30, 2007 the manager of the Aurora, Colorado Flying J Plaza, a couple of gentleman in a pickup, a tow truck and a policeman banged on numerous truckdriver doors, blocking their trucks and demanding 250.00 each to leave or to be towed, saying that they were paged numerous times inside the building to move their trucks. These drivers were "INSIDE" their trucks, idling so how were they suppose to hear a page INSIDE the building. If they needed to move their trucks then why didnt' someone knock on their doors? They were all in a row.
This smacks of a scam and the authorities will be involved. These drivers spend thousands upon thousands of dollars in your plaza's and they are treated horribly!
Yes, it was very late, your plaza was full and they were not parked legally but the 250.00 CASH or be towed sounds very very sketchy. A copy of this email will be sent to the attorney generals office for investigation, the attorney generals office in Washington D.C. and to the Aurora, Colorado's PD.
If someone is parked illegally then a ticket is issued. Never have I ever heard of an officer standing by while someone is demanding CASH! I believe that there is more to this than meets the eye.
