Dirty trucks coming from Mexico

American trucking businesses are getting %*&@'d, period! I understand that there are funds available to replace "dirty trucks." OK. Then I hear that President Bush's administration has opened up U.S. highways and roads to trucks and drivers from Mexico.

Talk about your dirty trucks. Are these trucks even inspected? Are they required to pay registration fees? Are the drivers trained and qualified to drive in the United States? Can they read the road signs? Not to mention, more air pollution, more accidents, more traffic and more wear and tear on our highways and roads. Who will pay? U.S. citizens in the form of higher taxes.

Does the Bush administration even listen to the voices of the American voters? This problem needs to be corrected now.
