This page last reviewed June 16, 2010

In August, 2009, Encore Trucking agreed to pay $3,000 in penalties; $2,250 to the California Air Pollution Fund, $375 to the California Air Pollution Financing Authority and $375 to Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Encore Trucking 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 (PSIP).  To settle the case, Encore Trucking agreed to the $3,000 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
