They won't get rid of the inspections because it provides thousands of jobs. It's basically a hidden tax.

I still can't believe New Jersey and Oregon force you by law to have someone fill your vehicles gas tank. They won't remove the law because it would put a lot of people out of a job. Or they think putting fuel in your car is too dangerous for their stupid residents? LOL

The quick answer as to why emissions testing was done away with in the Pikes Peak Region is because our air quality meets or exceeds federal air standards and therefore testing was deemed an unnecessary expense. Works for me!

Same situation for me when I lived in VA. In Northern Virginia, closer to the metro DC area, we had annual emissions checks. In Fredericksburg, about 50 miles south, we didn't need them. The air quality outside the metro area met Federal standards. Of course, you still couldn't stand breathing due to the oppressive humidity. But that's another story. No problem like that here.
