And now the Automobiles
To truly pound this refernce into the ground, we gave you planes and trains, and now the automobiles.
According to Bloomberg News:
The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, adjacent terminals that ship more cargo than any other harbor in the U.S., are encouraging truckers to load at night and on weekends to reduce traffic and air pollution.
PierPass, a group formed by marine terminal operators, agreed June 7 to implement a so-called OffPeak program that will double trucking hours and assess a day-time fee. That will take some of the 6 million truck trips generated each year by the harbors off the road during rush hour, said Port of Long Beach spokesman Art Wong.
No word out of the Mayor Elects office yet, but we presume that he will get behind this idea quick, being as he did nothing but talk of transportation problems throughout the campaign.
