BLAINE, Wash. — Truck traffic at the Pacific Highway border crossing is continuing to decline since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks against the U.S.

U.S. Customs is reporting that the average daily southbound truck count has been an average of 977 trucks per day since Oct. 1.

That’s down from the 1,259 that crossed daily prior to Sept. 11.

In fact, the numbers are even lower now than they were immediately following the attacks, as 1,108 trucks per day crossed at the well-travelled border crossing between Sept. 11 and Sept. 30.

Truckers looking for ideal times to cross the border should try to do so between 4 p.m. and 9, when truck traffic is at its lowest, advises U.S. Customs.
