"So this is where our taxpayer dollars go."
My thoughts exactly. Don't they have better things to do?

You didn't hear... it's their new method of trying to minimize smog in SoCal while fueling the budget. Kills two birds with one stone.

This is a great opportunity to let your elected officials (in this case state officials) know you disagree with the state doing this. A well written letter (not an e-mail) will get read and normally answered. Remember these elected officials are primarily interested in staying in office (all politicial parties) so if they hear enough people complaining about this they should pressure the "emissions police".

While I don't do many mods on my cars or motorcycles I think you should have the ability to do so. I see plenty of 70's-80's "junkers" on the road in the Bay Area spewing visable exhaust (oil, unburnt fuel, and coolant).

LOL damn, man..you're kinda late for this one too. The smog stations are mobile, the whole point is to show up at random intersections in random cities. I've seen them in The San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Valley.

I doubt anyone in this board will get in trouble even if you are picked. Well maybe the ones who are catless. All they do is send you to the ref to have the car looked at. It's only troublesome to the folks who are super modified performance-wise.
