Truckers Sue LA Ports Over Anti-Pollution Program [PlanetArk]

LOS ANGELES - The American Trucking Associations filed a federal lawsuit in a California court Monday morning against the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to stop plans intended to reduce diesel fuel pollution.

The Arlington, Virginia-based trade group estimates over 10,000 independent truckers will be prohibited from the Los Angeles port, which is banning independent truckers as of October 1 to tighten control over emissions.

Hopefully with the introduction of hybrids which cut down emissions we will be better off.
