Helping California truckers drive legally
For immediate release
SACRAMENTO - If you are a trucker, dispatcher or fleet owner, are you sure you know how to comply with the state’s rules for clean diesel trucks? California is midway through a multi-year program to clean up diesel trucks that operate in California, and each year brings important new elements and deadlines.
To help, the California Air Resources Board (ARB) is hosting workshops on the internet (webinars) to help explain the rules for 2016 so everyone involved in the truck industry can continue operating legally within the State.
The next webinars will take place on the following days:
On January 19th and 26th in English, and
On January 20th and 22nd in Spanish

ARB is in charge of enforcing air pollution regulations affecting all types of heavy-duty diesel vehicles operating within California to control pollution from diesel exhaust, as part of the Diesel Risk Reduction Plan.
Diesel exhaust contains a variety of harmful gases and more than 40 other known cancer-causing compounds. In 1998, California identified diesel particulate matter as a toxic air contaminant based on its potential to cause cancer, premature death and other health problems.
