NC may end yearly car inspections


This is a welcome change.  Is the nanny state finally taking a step back?

Better technology and equipment on new cars and smoother roads mean vehicles operate safely for longer stretches of time, said Sen. Stan Bingham, R-Davidson. The safety inspection is less necessary today, he said.

The chief sponsor of the bill, much of which stems from a 2008 report by the General Assembly’s government watchdog agency, said he’s open to adjustments that would require safety and pollution control inspections for older models, or possibly requiring longer intervals between inspections.

  1. Wisconsin has done bi-annual inspections for years. It’s time for NC to save some money and peoples time!

  2. How about no inspections and personal responsibility/consequences for your car? NC loses $141 million every year to the inspection system.
