  TravelCenters of America Enhances Trucker Electronics Offering at TA and
  Petro Stopping Centers

2013 Mid-America Trucking Show

Business Wire

WESTLAKE, Ohio -- March 21, 2013

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, announced today that the Cobra 29 LTD
Pro Pack -- a CB, external speaker and mic holder combination pack -- is the
newest item to be offered exclusively at TA and Petro Travel Stores.
TravelCenters announced its first three exclusively offered items last summer,
which included the Cobra 5825LX CB/GPS Bundle Pack, Magellan RoadMate
Commercial GPS listing TA and Petro locations, and the Rand McNally Large
Scale Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas.

TA and Petro also announced the availability of the TND™ 760 Electronic
On-board Recorder (EOBR) from Rand McNally. The Surface Transportation Act of
2012 mandated the use of EOBRs for Hours of Service (HOS) logging; all trucks
must be equipped with EOBRs by October 2015. The TND™ 760 EOBR can be
installed by participating TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube service and repair
facilities. The TND™ 760 logs HOS, tracks fuel efficiency, detects accidents,
monitors vehicle maintenance by detecting fault codes, and tracks vehicle
location through GPS, Wi-Fi® and cellular communication. Features are
dependent upon the accompanying service plan selected. Owners and fleets can
access this data through an easy-to-use web portal.

Drivers can see the TND™ 760 demonstrated at the TA/Petro booth (#19156) at
the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), March 21-23, 2013, at the Kentucky Expo
Center in Louisville. Drivers can also register to win a Cobra 29 LTD Pro Pack
or a Rand McNally Large Scale Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas at the TA/Petro booth
at MATS -- drawings will be held every hour throughout the show!
