Fresno Tractor Parts, Inc. Case Settles for $3,500
In May 2014, Fresno Tractor Parts, Inc. agreed to pay $3,500.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $2,625.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $875.00 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 program.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Fresno Tractor Parts, Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they relate to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) regulation. To settle the case, Fresno Tractor Parts, Inc. agreed to the $3,500.00 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
