Jason’s Law Passed by US Senate

Three years ago, Jason Rivenburg pulled his rig into an abandoned gas station parking lot, while he waited for his next stop to open for delivery. He believed he was safe—sadly, he was not. On March 5th, Jason was murdered in his cab.

Since that time, Jason’s wife, Hope, has bravely fought for the expansion of safe parking areas for truckers in memory of her husband.

Today, Hope’s fight took a giant step forward—the Senate voted 74-22 to pass the Transportation Bill, which includes Jason’s Law.

If passed by the House and signed into law, Jason’s Law will mean:
•    Construction of new parking facilities for trucks
•    Use of inspection stations, weigh stations and park-and-ride facilities for truck parking
•    Construction of turnouts along the National Highway System
•    Improvements to public truck parking facilities currently closed on a seasonal basis

We at Xata congratulate Hope on her legislative victory today and thank her for her tireless efforts to bring truckers home safely.

  1. I am so happy for you Hope. I do not know you but I have the highest regards for truckers. They are the lifeline of America. They work s hard and are treated so badly. I am so sorry that it took this to get where you are today. My son was a long haul trucker and I worried so much about him out there. I lost my husband two years ago, he was not a trucker but he respected them too. Believe me I am sorry for your loss. God bless you and take care of you.
