Green Justice League: Riding Dirty – Heavy Duty Vehicles

In August of 2021, President Biden signed an Executive Order that sets out timeline targets for heavy-duty truck rules. Trucks make up only 4% of vehicles on the road but contribute a baffling 90% of nitrogen oxide and diesel vehicle emissions. We see this reality in neighborhoods near highways, ports, and inland ports across the nation. Racist interstate planning makes Black and brown people most vulnerable to this pollution, elevating cancer risk and lowering life expectancy. The U.S. Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) must ensure that we reduce heavy-duty vehicles to zero emissions.
