In December, 2010, Petersen-Dean Inc. agreed to pay $11,250 in penalties; $8,437.50 to the California Air Pollution Fund and $2,812.50 to Peralta Community College District, for violating air quality regulations.

An investigation by the Air Resources Board (ARB) showed that Petersen-Dean Inc. 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, Petersen-Dean Inc. agreed to the $11,250 penalty and to comply with the PSIP and other ARB programs.
