i may lose my job and the other drivers may lose there jobs at the company we drive for because of these cali laws. my boss says at this time he has no intention to retrofit his older equipment. he says if he gets ticketed and fined for not updating he will simply close the doores and go back to his old job he had before he started this trucking company - retirement. !*&# you california
Screw the California A!$ Resources Board (CARB)! Just move to any other state and stop running to that hole of a place!
If you MUST run California (which I hate to do myself) after 1/1/2014, FORCE YOUR BOSS to get you the new Cascadia Evolution by Freightliner, or buy you one of Kevin's glider kits. Otherwise, wait until teething problems are over with the PACCAR, Cummins, Volvo, Mack and International engines, and avoid CALIFORNIA at all costs.
According to CARB, "a 1994-1996 MY truck or engine MUST be REPLACED WITH A BRAND NEW (EPA 2010 or NEWER) TRUCK/Engine by January 1, 2015. Grant and loan money is available for those who operate at least 50% of the time in California. Apply as early as possible to maximize funding opportunities."
Why should I (or anyone else) be FORCED to buy a BRAND-NEW, UNTESTED, UNPROVEN TRUCK when I can just avoid the state that's requiring it?
