Etrucker.com reports on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s pilot cross-border trucking program, allowing Mexican truck drivers to travel beyond border areas.
The program goes into effect in about 60 days. Trucks will be able to cross from Mexico provided safety checks are completed and proof of insurance is verified. Trucks must also be insured by a US licensed firm and meet United States safety standards.
Congressional transportation leaders are concerned about the new program, expressing concern over resources needed to enforce driving hours restrictions and drug and alcohol testing.
