SOJITZ SETTLES FOR SORE VIOLATIONS FOR $45,000
|In December 2003, Mobile Source Enforcement Section staff cited motorized kick-scooters offered for sale at a Bay Area chain of auto parts stores. The scooters were equipped with non-California certified engines. Further investigation revealed that Nichimen of America Inc. now doing business as Sojitz Corporation of America distributed 1,120 of these non-compliant engines in California. Unfortunately, it was not possible to recall these engines from consumers in California. The ARB and Sojitz reached a settlement agreement in the amount of $45,000.|
