I can see how some guy's frustration (If I have to shovel ONE MORE TRUCK...) plus gumption equals this product. Well done!

I could see that for truck stops where they have to park it for eight hours or so, they could pick up a lot of snow in that time.

I usually see those at shipper yards, such as FedEx or UPS. They are more common in CO and WY and places that see a LOT of snow. Some states have even passed a law that trucks must be cleared of snow because it tends to cause a whiteout behind us until the roof clears off, which can endanger motorists who follow too closely. Falling ice is especially hazardous.

I'd like to see these scrapers in truck stops in snow-prone areas, perhaps with a small fee to use them. Safer for everybody.

Just put them in the exits and make them free to use. If people had to pay they wouldn't do it. And yes it would be safer.

Then you have all the pushed off snow piled up on the exit, and eventually it'll built up till they hit the thing. Also there are the rigs with those high airfoils on the tractor and oversize loads that won't fit.
