Notes
  • The continued growth of interstate freight trucking brings with it the potential for inaccuracies in official government statistics on trucks' road use and pollutant emission contributions. State government agency emission estimates for states within the US commonly rely on in-state truck and fuel use records. Consequently, these records can incompletely reflect overall truck activity and emissions by neglecting the trucks that are registered and/​or are fueled out of state. An in-person interview survey of 433 heavy-duty truck drivers was conducted at select points of entry into California to better understand the contribution of out-of-state trucks, their fuel use, and their emissions in California. The results indicate that non-California-registered trucks and non-California-diesel fuel make up approximately 30% of Class 8 heavy-duty truck mileage on California roads. Non-California-registered-truck mileage is disproportionately concentrated in four California air basins that have significant air quality issues.
