Fort Wayne Truck Stop
Black has been a truck driver for 20 years and says 2020 is the hardest year of all.
"Everywhere I go to get loaded or unloaded they won't let you in the building," he says. "They won't let you use the restroom but that's OK with me because how do i know they're taking this seriously?"
He and many other drivers aren't sure what to do, now that many restaurants are closing down, and truck stops are shortening their hours.
Trucks aren't allowed in many areas due to their size, restaurants don't have allocated parking for them.
The options they did have, are even more limited.
