Jet Trucking, Inc. Settlement
Jet Trucking, Inc. Case Settles for $5,400
Jet Trucking, Inc. will pay $5,400.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $4,050.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,350.00 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 September 2015.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Jet Trucking, Inc. failed to bring two of their diesel fueled (Transport Refrigeration Units) TRU into compliance with the applicable in-use performance standards and failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state emission standards. Jet Trucking, Inc. also failed to have Emission Control Labels (ECL) affixed to its vehicles’ engines. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), ECL Program and the TRU Regulation. To settle the case, Jet Trucking, Inc. agreed to the $5,400.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP, ECL, TRU, and other ARB programs.
