Utah Bill Aims to Abolish Vehicle Inspection Requirement

Utah State Rep. John Dougall (R-27) has introduced legislation that would abolish the requirement that all motor vehicles obtain a certificate of inspection prior to registration. The Automotive Service Association (ASA) says the bill would dilute the Utah State Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection Program.

ASA opposes these changes to the Utah Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection Program. The bill’s effect would be to create less-safe highways in Utah – more accidents leading to more injuries and possibly more deaths, according to ASA. State government studies of vehicle safety inspection programs in Missouri and Pennsylvania have indicated that inspection programs deter accidents, injuries and deaths. The bill, if passed, would take effect upon its approval.

ASA asks Utah repairers to contact their legislators and express their opposition to House Bill 298.
