The California Air Resources Board has fined a Fontana-based heavy-duty diesel fleet $22,875 for failing to inspect its diesel trucks for compliance with the state’s smoke emissions standards. CARB says its investigators found that Dispatch Transportation Inc. failed to conduct diesel truck smoke tests in 2007 and 2008, as required by state law.

CARB also recently fined a Camarillo-based business $9,500 for failing to properly inspect its diesel truck fleet for smoke emissions. CARB says an investigation showed that Pacific Sod — a subsidiary of Pacific Earth Resources — failed to test, measure, record and maintain records for its diesel trucks in 2007 and 2008 at its terminals in Camarillo and Patterson.
