I have a report that shows over 79,000 vehicles, 1996 and newer, failed emissions
and NO CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON, in calendar year 2011.
Is it possible John Wallauch saw the problem and spoke-up against DAD??
Is that why he retired all of a sudden?? We may never know.
Was talking with the ESP guy today and he told me that the DAD devices have to be re certified every year and if they don't pass they can not be used. The other interesting thing is he said that this is the first time that in the law, the BAR can cancel the DAD program anytime it chooses to do so. Which makes the equipment companies nervious. The other states that use the DAD have no where near the cars that California has, so there is a lot of uncertainty, if it will work and be effective on this large of a scale. There is probably more cars in the LA area,then all the cars in any other state that is using this program.
