Cars sit for longer periods of time in a parking lot and many of them leak oil. More oil reaches our oceans every year from parking lots than by the Valdez accisent. These regualtions wil help protect the environment. Inspections on cars need to be more thorough so that oil leakers can be taken off the road until repaired. THis may also encourage people to buy newer cars, or cars from foreign manufacuring companies that have proven to last longer with better quality seals ect... Proper thougthful regulation can help both the people and business.
I am looking for a source for this kind of information. Do you know where I can get info on it? Thanks, GG

I remember seeing it in an Environmental Studies Textbook back in the late 90's. Can't remember the author or the professor, but we were studying Rachael Carson at the time also.
