Far West Equipment Dealers Association is a trade association representing agricultural, industrial, material handling, hardware, lumber, outdoor ..
power and rental equipment dealers. Similar to a California law that set in motion efforts to eliminate carbon emissions, the law would require utility providers to achieve a 100-percent reduction in GHG emissions by 2040 compared to 2005 levels. California Air Resources Board (CARB) staff invites you to participate in a public workshop to begin discussion of potential proposed amendments to the In-Use Off-Road Diesel-Fueled Fleets Regulation (Off-Road Regulation). The goal of these amendments would be to reduce emissions of criteria pollutants and toxics from off-road diesel vehicles operating in California, beyond the reductions being achieved via the ongoing implementation of the existing Off-Road Regulation. Although our work through the dealer association typically involves issues that impact the industry as a whole, I frequently get reminded that dealers are also competitors focused on taking action for the purpose of improving their business prospects. Of course, the flip side to many of these actions is that they might also have a negative impact on the business prospects of another dealer. Increases in speeding, cell phone use, and hard braking caused over 43,000 deaths in 2020 — almost 3,000 more deaths than in 20191 — so refocusing company drivers on safety is truly a life-saving endeavor.
