Market Express Transportation Inc. Settlement
Market Express Transportation Incorporated Case Settles for $2,000
In September 2014, Market Express Transportation paid $2,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $1,500.00 went to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $500.00 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.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Market Express Transportation failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards as required by the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). ARB documented violations as they related to PSIP. To settle the case, Market Express Transportation agreed to the $2,000.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP and other ARB programs.
