Just for fun!! Does your (US) state require annual safety and/or emissions inspections of motor vehicles?

By MarieN . Created on Sep 09, 2021
Several polls back the topic of safety/emissions inspections for motor vehicles (cars/trucks, etc.) came up for discussion. A few people mentioned that annual safety/emission inspections were NOT required in their (US) state in order to register their car/vehicle and/or drive on public roads and highways, while others said annual inspections ARE required. Curious minds want to know. Does your (US) state require safety/emission inspections? Since there is not enough room to list every state, PLEASE tell us your state as well. Thanks! :-)

Here ins PA, yes. For the most part, I am against it. I lived in SC for 18 years and they didn't have it. Perhaps the condition you keep vehicle in should be tied to the cost of insurance.

I used to live in Oregon and every year I prayed my old car would pass the DEQ test. I now live in Tennessee and there are no requirements whatsoever. Just pay your registration and go! I see cars that I wonder how they don’t have pieces fall off driving down the road!
