Clearing the Smog Law Haze
Everyone agrees that taking strides toward keeping our planet healthy is a noble cause, but how should the burden be shared? Clean air is a national concern addressed by the EPA, but the laws governing how motor vehicle smog checks are performed, which vehicles are tested and how frequently is handled at the state and local level. Maybe a daily driver needs an inspection every two years or so, but what about an infrequently driven collector car? Are the laws different for 3/4- or 1-ton trucks? And what if that truck is a diesel? The SEMA Action Network (SAN) helps you keep track of smog check requirements in each state and the laws that exempt certain specialty vehicles.
