Fines by CARB in 2009

The following list of fines is taken from the News Release section of the California Air Resources Board website.  These are fines that CARB brags about collecting. The fines on the gray lines seem to be fines for bad record keeping, while those on the green lines may have resulted in pollution. The numbers in red are discrepancies in the figures written in the News Release and the calculated totals.
Click on the release to go to the Actual CARB News Release. Each release contains a little 'cluck' by CARB 'head hen', Mary K. "The sky is falling"  Nichols.  Some samples below.

"Head Hen""Compliance with emissions recordkeeping and state smoke emission standards is a key component in cleaning up the air in California"

"Transit agencies serve a large number of people who ride the bus every day that are negatively affected by these harmful emissions."

"There is no excuse for violation of clean truck laws, ARB enforcement personnel offer trainings around the state to help drivers meet inspection, operating and recordkeeping requirements."

"Penalties for air pollution violations are a warning to business owners, The price can be more than a monetary inconvenience when a company's reputation is at stake."

"Vehicle emissions are the main contributor of smog-forming pollutants in California, Automotive retailers are required to stock products that meet California's clean air goals."

"Gasoline-powered blenders may be this year's tailgate sensation, but drinkers should not be polluting our air while having a good time"
