Don't always take truck drivers at their word. Yes, they have reserved parking you can buy, but in all but a few cases it's about 1/3rd of the lot at most. There are also truck stops that you have to pay to park in, but you can use receipts from the store and food places to cover the parking charge. I was at one like that the other night. It was $25 after the first 2 hours, which were free. But, spend $20 inside either on merchandise or food, buy 60 gallons of fuel, or get shop work done, and it's free.

Did you read the linked article?
Nearly every single drive thru refuses walk up's for insurance and safety reasons.
Call all your local restaurants with drive thru's and ask if they allow walk up's. They will all say no or not before the virus.
Some cities actually don't allow it by law.
Most don't allow it for insurance reasons, they don't want to be liable for people running over walk thru's.
Following the closure of dine-in services at many fast-food restaurants amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station in California issued a plea on Facebook asking anyone who can to assist truck drivers who are unable to purchase food at a drive-thru due to the size of their vehicles.
Most places do not allow walk ups in the drive thru. Therefore, these truck drivers have no other way of getting a meal. These drivers are the ones driving across the state/country to make sure your stores are stock, and the restaurants have food. The least we can do is buy them a meal to show our appreciation!
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Truck drivers are having a difficult time after orders passed down from state and county health departments are making it harder for them to get meals and other necessities.
Hard because you can’t drive a truck in a drive-thru and most restaurants now won’t allow people to walk up to get food. Jim Smith drove an 18-wheeler for over 20 years and has a suggestion.

Aww too bad. Just get the self driving trucks. You know the ones that run over granny and crash on the side of the road spilling food all over so out-of-work truck drivers can scavenge for food.
This entire corona event is a sham. The Enemy Media is wagging the big dog.
It is designed to upset people and take away the people's freedoms and liberties.
And the last part is.... WAKE UP!
Had to add that in there. Dontcha know.
