      About how long does it take the average truck to get from the back of the
      queue to the border?

      Could the entire line be instructed via radio to stop their engines for 30
      minutes while the first few dozen are allowed (by a traffic cop) to make
      their way across? Then have everyone move forward and shut down for
      another 30 minutes?

      Given the high amount of emissions cold engines put out on starting, how
      long would the interval need to be to actually reduce emissions?
