A federal ruling ordering Boston to lift its ban on daytime deliveries of hazardous materials, including propane, has been suspended for 45 days to give city officials chance to complete a safety analysis. Industry experts accused the city of simply seeking to delay the lifting of the ban. "It's disingenuous for Boston to ask for a 45-day extension when they've had more than four years to comply with the federal requirements," said Richard Moskowitz, vice president of the American Trucking Association.
