This settlement was reached in May 2017.

ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP), the TRU Airborne Toxic Control Measure, and the Truck and Bus (TB) Regulation. To settle the case, Mundo Trucking, Inc. agreed to the $19,500.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP, TRU, TB, and other ARB programs.
