"Once the program ends, will people have any incentive to fix emission problems?−
They certainly should. Obviously, keeping your car’s emissions system running is the right thing to do to protect public health — including the health of your family and your neighbors. Beyond that, if that check engine light comes on and you ignore it, over time you may be causing significant damage to your engine. The computer that runs your car relies on the data coming in from the emission controls to keep the engine operating properly. If you don’t fix a problem in one part of the system, you’ll start to see problems crop up elsewhere."
Time to move to Washington and remove the cats on my 91 GT mustang.
As far as I know, the only state that does vehicle emissions testing WITHOUT being mandated to by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is Colorado. The other 32 states that do it are basically required to do it in order to get money like highway funding.
If Washington's air quality meets federal standards why should they burden their citizens with emissions testing?
BESTA are you still commuting back and forth to work in an old dirty Dodge diesel? Why don't you drive a Prius if you are so concerned about what everyone else is doing for air quality?
People are usually shocked when they find out I'm not a very good electrician.
Yes but the BURDEN of the expense goes to the contractor. How much of the $8.25 is spent in COST?
Don't you keep all the money you charge? The Public Thinks you do. So do many of the PR's I have dealt with think.
One would always walk in and Say "Look at all the money you are making" Never did, but, HEY YOU WANT TO PAY MY BILLS.
People Don't Think.
Never make fun of the choices your wife makes. You were one of them.
