Truckers who have not already complied should place emissions control technology orders soon. Stock may be depleted for last-minute orders and then delivery could take up to three months.
CARB will begin enforcement after Dec. 31 and non-compliant TRUs could be penalized up to $500 per violation. There will be no grace periods for late ordering.
The California Air Resources Board said a false rumor exists that this deadline has been extended. Affected truckers should check the TRU Website at http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/tru.htm for more information.
