"The truth is, this program is one of those programs we need to take to the junkyard and put it in the scrap pile," said Sen. Charlie Albertson, D-Duplin.

and I agree with you. the truth is, the government doesn't care one wit about our safety, clean air or anything else except the money. this IS the "show me the money state". seems funny pre '96 vehicles don't have to be inspected for emissions and as far as I know, diesel also. only the "newer" vehicles. which do you think pollutes more if they can't do something that makes more sense, why not just scrap the whole program and save us some money. I realize most of this discussion is about safety inspections, but that's a joke too.

So true. As they say, "follow the money". Apparently dump trucks and other large vehicles, including school buses, don't have to pass emissions inspections!

Yea and I know about just as many that will inspect cars and truck. Seen plenty of those super loud redneck rides that jacked up twenty feet with a muffler that would put a ferry horn to shame. That street runs two ways, and there are far more loud ass trucks or some punk kids with an exhaust tip that sounds like a pissed of bumble bee in a can.

It is a tax, no one really cares about your safety as long as you shell out a few bucks to Raleigh.
