The air quality has always followed weather patterns here, not the cars, yet we still have emissions (OBD) testing. I am not sure what to think. If people just take care of their cars, it is generally a non-issue. However, in some cases it can become pretty expensive... even on a "newer" (maybe even especially) car, in some cases that isn't even paid off.

They are also working now on getting rid of our safety inspections, and THOSE I am an absolute advocate for. Because nobody's car flew apart and flung them into oncoming traffic if the MIL came on... but if your neglected ball joint flies out of its socket at 65 MPH....

The safety inspection is often the ONLY time anyone who actually knows cars ever takes a look at some of them. And it is cheap, too. If I could pay a dentist only $12 every two years to look in my mouth, I'd jump on it.
