In addition to the well-publicized change to California’s anti-idling regulations that go into effect Jan. 1, trucking companies also should be aware of the state’s engine-labeling requirement that will be enforced beginning in early 2008.
Effective Feb. 15, inspectors will begin to check engine emissions control labels as part of the state’s roadside inspection program. A fine of $300 may be issued to a commercial vehicle operator with a missing or tampered label. An additional $500 fine may be issued if proof of repair is not provided within 45 days.
