Port Of Los Angeles Adopts Proposal Banning Older Trucks
The Los Angeles Harbor Commissioners has adopted a proposed measure that will implement a progressive ban of older trucks from operation at the port of Los Angeles beginning in October 2008, Green Car Congress reports. The ban will reduce port-related truck pollution by approximately 80 percent over a period of just over five years.
The proposed tariff (PDF) will also require mayoral and city council approval by adoption as a city ordinance.
The schedule for the progressive ban is as follows:
- Ban pre-1989 trucks from Port service by October 1, 2008
- Ban 1989-1993 trucks from Port service by January 1, 2010
- Ban unretrofitted 1994-2003 trucks from Port service by January 1, 2010
- Ban pre-2007 trucks from Port service by January 1, 2012
The tariff would not apply to Dedicated Use Vehicles.
