These rustbuckets WILL be loaded with drugs and illegal aliens, plus their lack of safety can be expected to take some of us down on the roads. And, on top of all that, American truckers will now have to face cheaper competition in the labor force.

But hey, we're all getting rich ain't we?

You forgot something.

The cost of our uninsured motorist coverage is going to go way up.

Mexican and Canadian trucks must be insured to U.S. standards. Insurance companies are very strict with commercial trucking and will not insure unsafe trucks. Since Mexican trucks (not like the pictures posted on this thread) need to qualify under the Department of Transportation, show proof of insurance and provide 90 day inspection reports, and then undergo an inspection by the California Highway Patrol before they cross the border, where's the problem?

And, on top of all that, American truckers will now be able to travel into Mexico to pick up cargo!
