A story on the Etrucker website reports on a new EPA proposal for onboard diagnostic systems for trucks to reduce emissions.
Cars already feature technology similar to what the EPA is suggesting. The equipment would be installed on trucks and buses built after 2010, monitoring emissions and reporting problems with pollution controls to the driver.
The new systems are part of an effort to clean up diesel engine emissions, which has been linked to lung diseases and pollution-related deaths.
But what do the truckers think? Is this going to help make diesel trucks cleaner and more environmentally friendly? Is this just more regulation that will just burden truckers?
