Portland to ban delivery trucks in gas-free zone

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon

Portland is considering a pilot project to ban delivery trucks that are gasoline powered in a special 16-block zone in Downtown Portland.

The City would set up up special hi-tech sensors to monitor all traffic and exhaust.

The idea is to help reduce the smell and exhaust by forcing delivery companies to use delivery bicycle or electric cars for the final few blocks of delivery route.

City officials don’t want the smell of trucks to interfere with their beautiful City as seen below.

The ban is being put into effect, thanks to a $2 million dollar Federal grant.
