VRGS Trucking, Inc., will pay $4,125 in penalties ($3,125 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund and $1,000 to the Peralta Community College District for distribution to participating California Council on Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) colleges), for violating air quality regulations. This settlement was reached in January 2008. An investigation by the ARB showed that VRGS Trucking, Inc., failed to properly self-inspect the portion of their diesel powered vehicles fleet that falls under the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP). To settle the case, VRGS Trucking, Inc., agreed to the $4,125 penalty and to comply with the PSIP.
