In July 2010, Glasswerks LA, Inc. agreed to pay $5,200 in penalties for violating air quality regulations:  $3,900 will go to the California Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality; $1,300 will go to Peralta Community College District to fund emission education classes conducted by participating California community colleges, under the California Council for Diesel Education and Technology (CCDET) program.  An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Glasswerks LA, Inc. failed to properly self-inspect their diesel trucks to insure the trucks met state smoke emission standards.  ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSIP).  To settle the case, Glasswerks LA, Inc. agreed to the $5,200 penalty and to comply with the Periodic Smoke Inspection programs, and other ARB programs.
