Sterling Van Lines, Incorporated Settlement
Sterling Van Lines, Incorporated Case Settles for $2,000
In June 2015, Sterling Van Lines, Inc. agreed to pay $2,000.00 in penalties for violating air quality regulations: $1,500.00 will go to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $500.00 will go to the 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.
An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Sterling Van Lines, Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards as required by the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). ARB documented violations as they related to PSIP. To settle the case, Sterling Van Lines, Inc. agreed to the $2,000.00 penalty and to comply with PSIP and other ARB programs.
