Jason's Law

12,167 Signatures Goal: 50,000

Jason Rivenburg (35) was shot and killed in his truck in South Carolina on March 5,2009 in an abandoned gas station that was frequently used as a rest area. From our tragic loss we are hoping to create and pass "Jason's Law." The purpose of Jason's Law is to provide secure areas along our nation's highways for truck drivers to rest and/or wait to unload their trucks. Please help us to bring this issue to the attention of our legislators so that we may save another family from enduring such pain. Jason leaves behind his son,(2) his wife,and soon to be delivered twins. We the undersigned,are requesting that the U.S. Government enact legislation that will protect truck drivers within the United States. We are requesting that truck stops be required to have adequate lighting and cameras and businesses be required to provide a secure common area for them to wait to unload.

    All driver's should be provided parking accommodations by the receiver. How many more have to be killed, injured and/or maimed before something is done? My Dad was just recently shot after being turned away from parking at his receivers property!

    As a female former long haul trucker, this is a priority issue. Truckers should not live in fear of being assaulted if they run out of hours and need to find parking - it should be available in every community.

    My son is a truck driver and has been jumped numerous times at several truckstops. He needs to be able to carry his weapon to protect himself. All truckers should have the right to carry weapons for self protection, this world is getting worse day by day. Our truckers keep our lives running and they should have the right to protect their own lives.
