What Was At Stake
Truck pollution is a public health crisis, but it doesn’t have to be. Most heavy-duty trucks on the road burn diesel, which takes a heavy toll on the health of the communities trucks drive through as they belch dangerous levels of nitrogen oxides, benzene, and particulate matter. Breathing such heavily polluted air dramatically raises asthma rates and the risk of lung problems, leading some doctors to call neighborhoods with heavy freight activity “diesel death zones.” Tell the Environmental Protection Agency to do something about truck pollution.
