Motor Vehicle Safety Inspections
Position: NCCBI supports an
effective motor vehicle safety inspection program and opposes efforts
to eliminate such a program. Consideration should be given to amend
the program to exclude inspection requirements for newer vehicles.
Explanation: NCCBI opposes
abolishing motor vehicle safety inspections in North Carolina for the
following reasons. First, the inspection program helps to keep North
Carolina's roads safer and traffic fatalities down by keeping unsafe
vehicles off of the highway. Secondly, the inspection program helps to
reduce air pollution by decreasing mobile source emissions.
Legislation was introduced in
the 1997-98 General Assembly to abolish motor vehicle safety
inspections, but did not pass. NCCBI opposes any future efforts to
abolish the program.
