Easy way to report black carbon-emitting trucks and buses

Ever get stuck behind a truck belching black fumes into the air? These black carbon particulates are bad for the environment. Last year Secretary of State Hillary Clinton introduced an initiative to reduce black carbon, as well as methane and soot. (http://www.state.gov/r/pa/prs/ps/2012/02/184055.htm) I think it would be wise to set up a call number that would allow commuters to inform the state-level EPA or Department of Motor Vehicles about such trucks or buses so they can get tested, or if necessary fined, for their pollution.
