Maypa Trucking, Inc. Settles For $19,000
In June, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) reached a settlement with Maypa Trucking, Inc. (Maypa), located in Los Angeles, California, in the amount of $19,000 for the company’s violation of CARB’s air quality regulations.
A CARB investigation identified that Maypa failed to meet the applicable smoke testing requirements for most of the heavy-duty diesel vehicles in its fleet. CARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP) (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 13, § 2190 et seq.).
Terms of the settlement include a requirement for Maypa to attend a smoke-test training course, submit PSIP tests for the entire applicable fleet for the 2022 calendar year, and to comply with all other CARB regulations going forward. To settle the case, Maypa agreed to the penalty of $500 per PSIP violation for a total of $19,000. The $19,000 will go to CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality.
