Inspections only ensure that your lights and signals are fully operational, your windshield intact, and key pieces aren't being held on with bungie cords and a prayer. It's about safety both for you and others on the road. If your cars are truly built to last and up to snuff as far as safety goes, you've nothing to fear. LOL.

It reduced the amount of junkers broken down on the side of the road. It also reduced the chances of sitting behind a car spewing toxins while waiting at a red light, which has happened a few times here.

The state of Ar had inspections years ago and did away with them thankfully. Now only if Missouri would smarten up and do away with their terrible inspections that the shops hate doing, which I think they keep for the additional revenue only.

I can see why you would not want them, but the fact remains that in cities with a lot of smog they certainly help.

He is trying to make the point that people move here from Cali and try to change everything. What he doesn't realize is there are people who have lived here all their lives and want to change things too. Just because grandma did it one way doesn't mean it is the way to do it today.

I see. "Don't come here trying to change us." Well I am here and I am here to stay for a while. I see a lot of potential in this state. Change is inevitable.

Change is inevitable. And people have a wonderful opportunity to direct that change. Some people also want to take their time evaluating what kind of changes should be embarked upon. It doesn't hurt for people who want change to listen to people with reservations about those changes. The way we go about changing sometimes may be more important than the actual changes.

Change is enivitable and without change and growth we have death, but I still hope many do realize, each state is special because of certian things, don't try and change AR so it isn't AR anymore. Progress with keeping in mind what makes us special.
