Good lord, got enough yelling about bills here, remove collective bargaining, concealed carry, voter ID. Can you see people freaking out if that was proposed?

the way i look at it what'* worse, higher taxes on goods, services, property, or $40 a year per car to make sure they are safe and issues are taken care of before this kind of crap happens. once a year on the car owners birth month

Theres no way in hell I would have someone come to my house to inspect my car, it just gives some slippery thief a right to come onto my property and look for something to steal off it, you cant trust anyone. Plus I'm not going to pay for someone to come look at it when I'm perfectly capable of doing it myself.

we have them here all it does is give the service stations more money, dumb people still do dumb things.

For all of those out there that know your vehicles in and out and know when something is wrong or know how to spot it I applaud you but this thread is about the millions that don't care about theirs or anyone else'* safety for that matter. Those are the damn idiots I worry about

Around here, you have to have your vehicle inspected to get it licened when you buy it. I'm pretty sure its like that almost everywhere. I think an annual inspection is a little overkill, but maybe something like every 4 or 5 years after you purchase the vehicle wouldn't be as bad.

I don't think the inspections would be very effective personally. Sure they might pull a few bad eggs off the road, but in the long run it would be a lot of wasted time, and frustrated drivers.

I'm more for the required basic maintenance classes before you can get your drivers license as well as tighter restrictions on who can drive what. Don't have a lick of common sense? Stick with a smart car and stay out of the duallies.
