GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. — Mexican trucks will make their first forays into the US heartland beginning this weekend, much to the chagrin of the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA).
OOIDA has been trying to stall a pilot project allowing Mexican trucks to operate well into the US, but the project will proceed Sept. 1.
I am honestly stunned by the Administrations contempt toward the American public, Congress and the rule of law, said Todd Spencer, executive vice-president of OOIDA. They are determined to open our highways to Mexico-domiciled trucking companies regardless of the publics concerns and whats in the law books. Congress responded to concerns about the safety and security implications of this pilot program. It is truly amazing that the Administration is choosing to ignore Congress and the people they were elected to represent.
OOIDA said it will be requesting a last minute injunction against the project.
