The contribution deals with a problem of road trucks parking sustainability. The road freight transport is presently the most significant mode of transportation in frame of inland freight transport. The White Paper on Transport supposes in-creasing of transport to 80 per cent in 2050 compared to the year 2010. The sup-posal of transport increasing is fulfilling in real practise and is followed by in-creasing number of trucks in road infrastructure. To ensure the safety and sus-tainability of transport it is necessary to built not only higher roads capacity but also the infrastructure for cars parking that is connected with safety breaks and drivers’ rest ensuring. On the other hand, the increasing drivers´ demands on rest causes also the increasing demands on parking places. Authors in the first part introduce a review of available approaches for establishment of the parking places in the world. They analyze problems depending to parking in United States, Japan and Germany. In the next part the authors deals with a parking facilities for freight transport. Drafts are processed on the base of own authors´ research.
