Amen to that..I refuse to use any shared indoor restroom at these places. The majority of them are not separate men's and women's.. just one shared restroom regardless of gender, and the majority of them are super nasty... No thank you. I bought my own little potty at Cabela's that sits nicely out of the way on my sleeper floor. Got its own water tank for chemicals and water for flushing.
I’m MD I’m starting to see more gender neutral restrooms (or whatever they’re called) where you can use either one.

This one?

Why aren't these required for every truck. Employers should be required to offer these.

then comes the sanitary issue if a company were to just give them away. a new driver may very well refuse to use one, that who knows how many others have used.

i think that if a person were to buy thier own, they will keep it clean. over someone who just gets one for free.

Companies are not going to provide camping potties.

If you think pilot lots are nasty now, wait until the lowlifes start emptying their camping toilets on the pavement under their trailers.

And you already know how nasty the inside of a truck can get with slobs driving them. Imagine what will happen when these camping toilets tip over and leak all over the floor?

Reasonable accommodation... there are plenty of rest stops, truck stops, gas stations, Walmarts, and rest rooms that are adequately cleaned at shippers and receivers across this country. If that's not good enough for you, you'd best purchase and maintain your own personal, private portapotty.

Absolutely spot on. Things are bad enough now. I watched some jackass dump a pee bottle on the pavement at a Love's a couple of days ago... damn lazy jackwad couldn't walk 20' to dump it in the grass. I hate to think where the contents of a portapotty would end up at.
