The California Air Resources Board has designated August "Gear Up for Clean Truck Month," to remind diesel users that the rules are in effect and being vigorously enforced.

CARB says in August, outreach and enforcement teams will conduct several highly visible events throughout California, including inspections at weigh scales, random roadside locations, fleet facilities, truck stops, and other areas where diesel vehicles are present to ensure full compliance with diesel regulations. Enforcement actions could involve fleet citations and audits.

As part of the enforcement awareness campaign, the agency will also be providing compliance assistance to educate truckers on regulatory requirements that affect their businesses.
