Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 50 years, explains why state car inspections are basically just a money making tax scam for the states who have them. They do not prevent accidents, as scotty proves in this video, comparing states with inspections to those that don't have them.
I believe Virginia has that bs too!!! Glad I live in Maryland!!!
It's a scam. Texas needs to get rid of the safety inspections altogether. People in emissions counties like Harris, and Travis counties are paying about $15 a year for their inspections and $7 a year for non emissions counties and vehicles that are at least 25 years old, certain diesel powered vehicles, and EVs like Teslas.
The main thing is to take care of yourself and not to exceed the speed. And still not sure to get drunk behind the wheel. State Car Inspections does not change anything, all its functions are to take money from us. In general, buying a car is a serious matter, you should not approach it irresponsibly. We at the university were recently asked to write an essay about the most frequent breakdowns in a car. I was at a loss what to do, because I don’t have a car, it was like a joke to me. It is very good that there are quality sources where you can get information. By the way, interesting ideas are here - https://edubirdie.com/blog/satire-essay-topics By the way, I wrote that the most common failures are when the car does not start, the battery has sat down and the car does not open.
I don't think state inspections are a scam or unnecessary. I recently moved back to North Carolina from California. It is abysmal how many cars have basic problems like few or no working taillights and obvious emission problems. Some of them are obscene and dangerous (especially no working taillights).
In N.Y. it's B'S and a legal form of coin siphoning. I got a 100 dollar ticket for being one day late. First time In 40 years of owning cars! In the Nassau County Supreme Court lot too! They have a Lot Lurch that checks your plates, tires, stickers and if you have one unpaid ticket, they boot or yank your car. Nice folks! On point you are, Sir! Why does a brand new car need an inspection? Simply put-The King gets the coin and no other reason. Try to fight it and you still walk out with a minimum donation of 50 bucks. That's to discontinue The People's action against you. Of course, the Robe only knows one word when you go in there. Guilty! Then it's more money than the original fine. Profit!
