‘Rolling coal,’ the anti-environmentalist trend of customizing a truck to make it emit more toxic exhaust, has now been declared illegal by an official with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Bucking calls for cars to be more fuel efficient and even powered by alternative energy sources, some truck owners in recent years have been turning up the injection pump on their diesel engines so huge plumes of black smoke are emitted every time the engine is revved—often in the direction of bystanders, bikers, or hybrid vehicles.
When asked recently about the agency’s stance on the vehicles, EPA press secretary Liz Purchia told TPM: “the short answer is this is illegal.”
Purchia cited text from the EPA’s air enforcement page which read, in part: “It is a violation of the [Clean Air Act] to manufacture, sell, or install a part for a motor vehicle that bypasses, defeats, or renders inoperative any emission control device.”
