CMD Trucking Case Settlement
CMD Trucking Case Settles for $22,875
CMD Trucking will pay $22,875.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $17,156.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $5,719.00 went to the Peralta Colleges Foundation to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program. This settlement was reached in October 2016.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that CMD Trucking failed to (1) bring five of their heavy-duty diesel tractors into compliance with the Particulate Matter Best Available Control Technology requirements, (2) properly affix Emission Control Labels (ECL) on the engines of their fleet vehicles, and (3) properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), the Truck and Bus (TB) Regulation, and the ECL Program. To settle the case, CMD Trucking agreed to the $22,875.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP, TB, ECL, and other ARB programs.
