*For light vehicles, 1996 & up...

Upstate NY has annual inspections for $21.00.
Breakdown is~
$11.00 for emission testing (OBD2)
$10.00 for safety checks

If one fails the emissions, $450.00 max to fix within 30 days. Fail again, get a waiver good enough for another year.

In the big city & surrounding counties fall under NYMA (New York Metropolitan Areas), $37.00 a year.
$27.00 for emissions
$10.00 for safety.
The inspection stations have at least one exhaust proctologist, the tech inserts a long tube "up there" to get readings.

Maryland sounds like a cheap place to live-

And there's what like 10 million people in LA county now, vs. 7 mil in 1970, and the plan wasn't just tailpipe emissions, it was lighter fluid, tire design, fireplaces, etc., and it worked, and then there was that gas additive, MBPA or something, that worked great, but it contaminated the ground water, whoops.

It's diminishing returns for sure. A '72 Polara put out as much as 100 or more modern EFI/catalyst cars, and the mfgs have adapted to make this the real golden performance age, but how much lower can they go, not much of course. Electric cars don't have tail pipe emissions, but their tires do, and the manufacturing process of the batteries is dirty. Science will figure it out.

It's all a money grab out there by CA.gov that spends money poorly.

You have a high emissions vehicle, you pay extra to drive it. Same amount of emissions, they just cost more money. You have an old vehicle that's CARB exempt, you pay extra to register it, same emissions, just cost more money. I'd argue that a piece of the purchase price of every car goes into the stupid research car companies have to do to be able to sell a car in Cali.

We have emissions testing here in MD too. It's horribly frustrating and again, just a money grab. $14 to have your shit tested, if it passes you're good for 2.5 years. If it fails, you have 180 days to fix it and another $14 to test it. If it fails again and you pay to test it. You show receipts for the work you did or parts you bought, if they add up to $150 you get to pay for an exemption and you drive around pumping smog. No reduction in smog. It's all a fucking joke.

Cash for clunkers did more for emissions than anything else. It ruined the cheap car fleet in the country but all those smog pumpers are off the road at least...
My 2015 Sienna costs a ton more to reg than my 67 ford or 04 Jeep. Worst cash grab ever.

If you do some reading on all the diesel shops that have been raided and shut down recently it is rather scary. Hell, I personally know the owners of two different shops, one in Michigan and one in the Denver area, that we’re raided with armed federal agents. They came in like that scene in the first “fast and furious” when they go after that Asian dude. That scene is what both guys compared it to.

So where does this go? I mean Trump is lowering standards so the epa is acting like a cornered animal and going after anything it can. I really have no idea what is gonna happen next. Until the epa gets shut down completely or the states truly get their rights back I have no clue where this is heading.

siduramaxde And then you have this "California fire experts estimate that the blazes that devastated Northern California's wine country in October 2017 emitted as much CO2 in one week as all of California's cars and trucks do over the course of a year."

Maybe California should not worry about CARB so much and start managing the forests to prevent more fires

That explains the whole reason Volkswagen was sending up dirty diesels...

Wrong. You know I won't defend California, but a fact is a fact.
Mainly from the SSW in the summer and NNE in the winter. Like RIGHT now this very minute.


And the canyon isn't likely smoggy today. When the jet stream dips and blows out of SoCal, it gets thick up there.

I spend a lot of time up there and own land nearby....don't really give a shit what your little graphic says.

dntsdad Fuck CARB and their regulations on everything from what lawnmower I can buy, red sticker/green sticker, gas cans, making it ridiculously difficult to swap a NEWER, CLEANER motor into a older vehicle, and on and on.

If Trump gutted them, he gets my vote.

CA can still do whatever they want, What Trump is doing is rolling back Obama era Federal regulation that makes the Fed mirror CARB standards.. In other words, the rest of the country can do what they want too...

states over ruling feds by going more strict with national stuff is a fed issue and should not be a state issue.

eliminate nhtsa/epa/et al and let the states set their own standard = fine with me

allowing carb to dictate epa standards is absurd

Lil Uzi CARB changed just as every other agency in CA and the Country changed as exisitng engineeers and scientists were replaced through age and attrition with new UC Santa Cruz and Berkeley or UC Colorado air heads. I completely applaud the Trump administration for shackling the out of control state agency.

Edit: watch the UC system ban travel to any state that doesn't follow the CA limits set by CARB or to Washington DC because der Leader resides there.

Also....
