FAA Proposes $72,000 Penalty Against Daimler Chrysler for Hazmat Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Southern Region, has proposed to
assess a $72,000 civil penalty against
Daimler Chrysler of Newark, DE, for
allegedly violating Department of
Transportation hazardous materials

The FAA alleges that on November 18,
2001, Daimler Chrysler improperly
offered a fiberboard box containing
twelve 22-ounce plastic containers of
liquid Mopar Tire & Wheel Cleaner,
which are corrosive liquids, to United
Parcel Service (UPS) for transportation
by air. Ground handling employees at
the UPS sort facility in Louisville,
KY, discovered the shipment leaking.

Daimler Chrysler offered the hazardous
materials for transportation when they
were not packaged, marked, classed,
described, documented, or in condition
for shipment as required by
regulations. Daimler Chrysler also did
not make available at all times the
required emergency response

Daimler Chrysler has 30 days from
receipt of the FAA notice to submit a
reply to the agency. This announcement
is made in accordance with the FAA’s
practice of releasing information to
the public on newly issued enforcement
actions involving penalties of $50,000
or more.
