Certified Transportation Services, Inc. Settlement
Certified Transportation Services, Inc. Case Settles for $3,000
In August 2010, Certified Transportation Services, Inc. agreed to pay $3,000 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $2,250 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $750 will go to the Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Certified Transportation Services, Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to insure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). To settle the case, Certified Transportation Services, Inc. agreed to the $3,000 penalty and to comply with the Periodic Smoke Inspection programs, and other ARB programs.
