First Mexican truck under NAFTA heads to U.S. interior
By Chris Woodyard
For the first time under the North American Free Trade Agreement, a
Mexican tractor-trailer has crossed the border into the U.S. on its way
into the country’s interior.
Others may range across the United States, but this first truck wasn’t
going all that far: Dallas. It was carrying a steel drilling structure,
according to the Associated Press. Still, that’s a lot farther than a
narrow strip along the border in which Mexican trucks have been confined
in the past.
The NAFTA trucking program was stalled for more than a decade by
American opponents who said it would put highway safety and American
jobs at risk.
