Lincoln Transportation Services Settlement
Lincoln Transportation Services Case Settles for $8,500
Lincoln Transportation Services will pay $8,500.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $6,375.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $2,125.00 will go 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 April 2016.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Lincoln Transportation Services failed to 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). To settle the case, Lincoln Transportation Services agreed to the $8,500.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP and other ARB programs.
