THREE BIG TRUCKING Cos. PENALIZED * USA: By Californian EPA

* California - EPA announces settlements with three companies for violating pollution rules


--- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced recent settlements with three companies totaling $201,000 in penalties for violating California’s Truck and Bus Regulation... The companies, which all have locations in Fontana, either failed to install particulate filters on their own heavy-duty diesel trucks or failed to verify that trucks they hired for use in California complied with the state rule... "Diesel trucks are heavily used in the San Joaquin Valley and Los Angeles Basin, which suffer from some of the worst air quality in the nation,” said Alexis Strauss, EPA’s Acting Regional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest. “EPA is committed to helping California achieve cleaner, healthier air by ensuring compliance with the state’s pollution rules.” 
• C.R. England, Inc. operated 34 heavy-duty diesel trucks in California, is required to pay a $64,000 penalty... 
• Knight Transportation Inc., is required to pay a $72,000 penalty... 
• Werner Enterprises, Inc. operated five heavy-duty diesel trucks in California from 2012 to 2014 without the required diesel particulate filters, is required to pay a $65,000 penalty...
