In September 2009, Napa Valley Towing agreed to pay $2,250 in penalties; $1,687.50 to the California Air Pollution Fund, $281.25 to the Peralta Community College District, and $281.50 to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority for violating air quality regulations. An investigation by the ARB showed that Napa Valley Towing failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to assure the trucks met state smoke emission standards. ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSI). To settle the case, Napa Valley Towing agreed to the $2,250 penalty and to comply with the PSI and other ARB programs.
