The article reports on the impression of truckers toward the extended gate program managed by PierPass Inc. in Los Angeles-Long Beach, California to reduce traffic congestion and harbor-generated pollution at the nation's largest port complex. According to harbor truckers, they are making more round trips per day and earning more since PierPass extended gate hours but does not mean that they are overjoyed. However, a company survey showed that 61% of truckers had positive opinion of the program.
