COLUMBUS, Ind. — The complete line of Cummins truck diesels can now meet Clean Idle requirements in California, allowing those engines to idle beyond the state Air Resources Board’s five-minute limit, the engine maker announced.
SACRAMENTO — The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has tabled two separate draft regulation proposals that could hit truckers deep in the pocketbook. The first would require an EPA’07-equivelant retro-fit for trucks built prior to 1998. The second proposal would require all 2011-model-year and later equipment be EPA SmartWay certified in order to operate 53-ft trailers on California highways.
