California Auto Dealers Exchange Settlement
$62,146 in Fines Paid by California Auto Dealers Exchange
In April of 2004, ARB cited the California Auto Dealers Exchange (CADE) for selling dirt bikes, pocket bikes, ATVs and go-karts equipped with non-certified engines at a dealer-only, auto auction in Rosemead. CADE immediately stopped selling these non-compliant vehicles and recalled all remaining stock from all its auction locations in California. In addition, CADE provided a list of non-compliant vehicles it may have inadvertently introduced into commerce in California.
The ARB reached a settlement agreement with CADE for $62,416 to be paid to the California Air Pollution Control Fund.
