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.
