Contents Notes
The report, authored by the Pacific Institute and the East Bay Alliance for a Sustainable Economy, finds Oakland Port truck diesel emissions pollute surrounding neighborhoods and contribute to premature death, exacerbate asthma, and increase cancer risk and other diseases among residents and drivers. Residents and truck drivers pay the price with their health, and taxpayers, residents, and truck drivers pay the health care costs. Further negative impacts such as noise, pedestrian hazards, lack of sleep and lower school performance are caused by trucks in the neighborhoods.
