Smog Test

Just as a point of interest as of 1-1 2020 the state of Washington will no longer require vehicle smog testing. They figured as older vehicle use decreases and more newer clean cars are in use the tests are no longer needed or are cost effective. A rare demonstration of bureaucratic common sense.

Wow. Would be nice if California was that smart. But then again, I’ll just shut up right now before it gets political.

Hi, Dan. The last thing that I heard was that Oregon only had a few big cities that require smog testing. I also read that vehicles from out of state might require a smog test when moving to Oregon. Even then, they said the smog test was only visual, codes, and check engine light. No sniffers or dynos in Oregon. None of my vehicles were tested when we moved here. I think that since they know our vehicles came from California, they must be clean.

Hi Bob, I think you might have been allowed in because of the age of the vehicles, the new ones are so clean compared to the older cars.

We never had smog checks on the peninsula because of low population density and clean ocean air. With all nonsense going on today I just had to give the state credit for getting something right.

How is Lee doing these days? Please give her our best whishes.
