The New Mexico Public Regulatory Commission recently fined Caliente Trucking of Albuquerque for violating the state’s Motor Carrier Act, according to the New Mexico Business Weekly. No explanation was given regarding the specific allegations.
The company reportedly paid a $1,000 fine for the initial violation, and according to the agreement reached between the PRC and Caliente Trucking, it must abide by the transportation rules and regulations for three years. If it fails to meet those standards, the PRC could seek an additional $4,000 in restitution, the Business Weekly reported.
The New Mexico PRC regulates privately-owned electric, natural gas, water and wastewater utilities. It monitors those industries as well as telecommunications, motor carriers and insurance providers to ensure fair and reasonable rates for consumers.
