The money will be used to replace around 16,800 trucks by 2012 with vehicles that met 2007 pollution standards. Trucks that comply with the latest guidelines cost about $150,000 each, a sum that many independent operators who earn an average of $12 an hour would be unable to afford without help from the ports. "The container fee is the fundamental, first step to ensuring we have the momentum and money to make the most aggressive plan to green the ports' fleet a reality," Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in a statement.
