Reuters is reporting that court appeals have failed to block a Department of Transportation program allowing Mexican trucks access to US highways.
The one-year pilot program is set to start on September 6. Labor and consumer unions had sought to block the program over safety and legal concerns.
WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas/Fort Worth reports that the pilot program could allow up to allow 540 trucks to have access when it begins.
The Associated Press reports that 100 Mexican trucking companies would be part of the program.
