Beginning Feb. 15, California will require every truck traveling into the state to have “Engine Emission Certification” labels as part of the state’s roadside inspection program.
If a truck doesn’t have a label, a fine of $300 could be issued immediately, and another $500 if “proof of repair” isn’t provided within 45 days.
Labels are created by the engine manufacturers only. Most engines will have the labels, unless they are old or have been rebuilt. If you are missing the labels, consult your local dealership.
