This page last reviewed April 8, 2010

In August 2009 Time Warner Cable agreed to pay $8,500 in penalties; $6,375 to the California Air Pollution Fund, $1,062.50 to the Peralta Community College District, and $1,062.50 to the California Pollution Control Financing Authority for violating air quality regulations.  An investigation by the ARB showed that Time Warner Cable failed to properly self-inspect their diesel vehicles to assure the vehicles met state smoke emission standards.  ARB documented violations as they related to the Periodic Smoke Inspection Program (PSI).  To settle the case, Time Warner Cable agreed to the $8,500 penalty and to comply with the PSI and other ARB programs.
