FMCSA looking at parking availability notice system

| 6/17/2005

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is moving forward with its SmartPark program, which plans to use commercial technology to alert drivers on the road to parking availability within a 50-mile radius.

The agency is seeking vendors to develop proposals for the SmartPark program, for which it says it has $2 million available. The projects will be announced in the fall.

All proposals are due in to the FMSCA by Sept. 16.
