In November 2013, MVP Trucking Inc. agreed to pay $18,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $13,500.00 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $4,500.00 will go to 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.
