Ventura County Transportation Commission Settlement
$5,000 in Fines Paid by Ventura County Transportation Commission
In February 2009, the Ventura County Transportation Commission (VISTA) agreed to pay $5,000 in penalties; $3,750 to the California Air Pollution Fund, $625 to the Peralta Community College District, and $625 to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that VISTA failed to meet the Fleet Rule for Transit Agencies-Transit Fleet Vehicle Requirements (TFV), Title 13 CCR Section 2023.2 (b) (1) for PM reductions. ARB documented violations as they related to the TFV. To settle the case, VISTA agreed to the $5,000 penalty and to comply with the TFV and other ARB programs.
