ATV Air Pollution

Philadelphia, PA: (Dec-31-07) The California Air Resources Board brought charges against the Pep Boys - Manny, Moe & Jack, alleging that the company sold all terrain vehicles at multiple stores in California in violation of state air quality standards. The suit claimed that during December 2006, the Philadelphia-based chain of more than 560 auto parts and service stores sold and offered for sale Baja Motorsports' Storm 125 cc ATVs to California consumers. Records show that the retailer reported its violations and settled the case after realizing that the ATVs failed to meet California emissions requirements.

As part of a settlement reached, the Pep Boys paid $154,000 to the California Air Resources Board, resolving allegations. Sources stated that the Pep Boys paid the $154,000 to the Air Pollution Control Fund, which funds projects that mitigate pollution through education and the advancement and use of cleaner technology. This fund supports pollution related research projects and programs. [PHILADELPHIA BUSINESS JOURNAL: ATV AIR POLLUTION]
