A-1 Express Delivery Service Case Settlement
A-1 Express Delivery Service Case Settles for $17,000
An investigation by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) showed that A-1 Express Delivery Service (A1EDS) was in violation of the Truck and Bus Regulation (California Code of Regulations, title 13, section 2025). A1EDS failed to meet the Engine Model Year Compliance Schedule set forth in the Truck and Bus Regulation for 7 heavy-duty diesel vehicles in their fleet.
The total penalty assessed in this case was $17,000, or $2,428.57 per vehicle for 7 vehicles in violation of the Truck and Bus Regulation. The investigation identified emissions violations; however, the penalty was discounted based on the fact that it was a first time violation and A1EDS made diligent efforts to comply and to cooperate with the investigation.
A1EDS agreed to the conditions of the settlement including $12,750 of the penalty going to the Air Pollution Control Fund and the remaining $4,250 going to the Peralta Colleges Foundation. A1EDS will also submit proof of compliance with the Truck and Bus Regulation within 45 days of the execution of the Settlement Agreement to CARB. A1EDS is working on bringing all vehicles in to compliance with the Truck and Bus Regulation within the time frame specified in the Settlement Agreement.
