CARB ‘sends message’ with enforcement blitz

| October 18, 2012

California’s Air Resources Board throughout the month of August held a statewide inspection blitz in which it checked more than 4,000 trucks for compliance with its anti-pollution laws, including checking trucks of certain year models for diesel soot filters — a California law. CARB concluded that it sent a “message to truckers” about complying with its pollution laws and called the blitz “a huge success.”

817 citations were given during the month-long campaign, which the state dubbed Gear Up for Clean Truck Month. Overdrive sister site CCJ has the full report on CARB’s crackdown, along with some upcoming compliance deadlines for truck owners and fleets. See the story here.

    This insanity withe CARB. needs to stop. They are going to ruin the owner operators in this state, and make it easier for out of state conglomerates to monopolize the market. CARB is an unaccountable state bureaucracy that will not allow any negative public input to their programs.

    So they gave us truckers a message? The message was not nice. And they are proud of it! Shame. Do they want a reply?
