Change coming for California's idling limit

A change to California's statewide five-minute idling limit will take effect Jan. 1, 2008, that will eliminate the state's current exception for sleeping or resting in a sleeper berth. Once the change takes effect, alternatives to main engine idling will be needed to supply cab heating, air conditioning and power beyond the five-minute limit.
This is just yet another reason for me to stay away from California if at all possible. There speed limit sucks, they hate truckers, Los Angeles is a disaster area in regards to traffic, and now if I need to take my 10 hour break in the daytime, I will have to sweat my ass off if I am in the communist state of California.

What a joke of a State.
