Should there be restrictions on trucks from Mexico?

Mercurynews.com reports on the controversy over trucks from Mexico and restrictions on their travel.

When the NAFTA treaty was signed back in 1993, Mexican truck drivers were supposed to have access to all American roadways, similar to an agreement signed with Canada.

Instead, legal complications keep Mexican truckers within a 20-mile zone in Texas. While President Bush and the Supreme Court agree that there should be no legal barriers, the restrictions remain and frustrate Mexican drivers.

What do you think? Is it time for the roads to be open to trucks from Mexico or not? Post a comment and let us know.

  1. If there trucks pass for safty, they have a U.S. drivers licence and valid insurance for the state they are in, can speak and read english ( they need to be able to read safety signes and communicate in case of an accident ), and have a U.S. business licence.M.J.
