The total penalty obtained in this case was $2,000, or $1,000 per vehicle based on the fact that this was a first time violation and Kings River Trucking, Inc. made diligent efforts to comply and to cooperate with the investigation. Since penalties assessed had already been substantially reduced, no additional reduction was given in this case based on voluntary disclosure.

The vehicles have been reinstated to meet the requirements for the Truck and Bus regulation low use compliance requirements.
