as if cali cant get any worse!

Moving Smog Stations!

you have got to be ****ing kidding me. its a trailer with the dyno on it, and can be used on all types (awd or not). basically insead of a Sobriety test, theyre gonna have random "Smog" test stations.

its supposedly to test the populus emissions in a given area. yeah right. its a ploy, to flag and pull over "modified" vehicles to gain revenue. you KNOW they wont waste their time letting everyday polluters like minivans and SUV's on the dyno, yet your mildly modded honda will be the first on there.

you dont HAVE to do it, its supposed to be an "at will" thing. but you know theyll have the street blocked off, and theyll let the normal cars go while the modded looking ones get strapped down. technically, unless you are reffed, you do not have to smog your car until your 2 years is up. BUT if you dont smog, youre basically admitting to hiding something, and that is grounds for a inspection. so youre basically ****ed either way.

theyre going to be out in force this weekend, due to the ricer-tastic F&F3. hell i might slap on my stock intake to waste their time and **** with their heads. hell if it means i smog my car then and i dont have to do it 2 years and they pay for the smog fee and to send it to the dmv, why the **** not?

Re: as if cali cant get any worse!

That sucks man, really. I have yet to understand cali's obsession with smog. I mean sure, some inspection, nothing wrong with that. I could actually put up with texas' inspections. But to pull someone over just because you think they have a non-cali approved part on their car, that's bs.

Re: as if cali cant get any worse!

Friend of mine took this story and gave it to his friend who's got this tricked out Evo. He actually went out looking for these people, and just when he was going to give up they found them! They told him to get up on this wheel base like found on dyno's, except they only had it for 2 wheel driven cars. Not AWD/4WD. So he told the guy if they **** up his car, he'll sue the crap out of them.

Did I mention his friend is a lawyer and knows how to get away with practically anything on the road?

So after a lot of talk about how much the car is insured for and such.. they let him go without doing it to him lol true story.

Re: as if cali cant get any worse!

yay for Iowa!!! no smog testing, I could probably get a ticket for not having cats, but most cops don't care as long as you stay out of some of the stuck up areas where they actually enforce noise ordinances
