ATA offers California idling survey

The American Trucking Associations has been asked by the California Air Resources Board to help gauge how prepared trucking companies are for an upcoming change in the state's idling laws.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2008, sleeping or resting in a sleeper berth will not be exempt from California's statewide five-minute idling limit. Once the change takes effect, idling will not be a legal option for truckers who want to keep their cabs comfortable while resting.

Trucking companies doing business in California are asked to complete a brief survey at www.truckline.com/carb_idlereg.
