New Bern Transport Corp. Settlement
$280,125 in Fines Paid by New Bern Transport Corp.
In March, 2008, New Bern Transport Corporation agreed to pay $280,125 in penalties: $210,094 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $70,031 to the Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by ARB showed that New Bern Transport Corporation failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB inspectors documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSI). To settle the case, New Bern Transport Corporation agreed to pay the $280,125 penalty and to comply with PSI and other ARB programs.
