Inspections... oh not looking forward to them yearly..Loved it when I didn't live in the city, didn't have to go through the "wasted time". Safety items inspection..let see, if it adds 1 minute per car at 60 cars per day, per inspector at 4 lanes, 4 hours saved.. wow maybe it will only take, 45 minutes instead of 1 1/2 hours to get through the line.. Better yet, close the stations, and tell the police, write the tickets. I have seen cars smoking, held together by wire, rope, bungy cords, duct tape, etc, etc.. and yea, new tags. Remember the story on the news about the tire rebate program, what about the truck that was 2nd in line with a load of tires, look at the front of it, 1 headlight, held on by duct tape, and the truck leaning so far over on one side, something had to be broken below. Oh yea, he drove it down to the rebate center at night, and I am sure it smoked all the way. Has anyone asked, why the county residents don't go through inspection ? Oh wait, for some reason that has to deal with the goverment, if you live in the county, no inspection, but if your in the city limits,you must go through inspection. maybe I'll sale my house and move 2 blocks away, so I don't have to get my car inspected anymore.
You know, I once lived outside the city and didn't have to take my car thru inspection.. that was great. Now I live in the city and have for about 15 years.. The yearly trip to the inspection station is a dredded day, and I still feel a waste of time. My car has to go thru during the summer when the heat is above 90.. siting there for 30 minutes is bad enough, but no, I have to sit for over 1 hour.. all the exhaust, no being able to use the air, and not to mention, forbid it if you have you window open to let the air in, while the vehicle next to you is blowing it's exhaust in your car... Want to fix the inspection station issues, close them, do away with it, or open them 24 hours a day for 6 days.. they can close on sunday..
