    inspect the vehicles before they get their inspection stickers or tags then that might keep them from getting their car tags renewed. For example when I lived in Memphis they actually test your exhaust and sometimes you would have to come back or deliberately gun you engine to blow out the exhaust because sitting in line with the engine running would build up the contaminants in your exhaust.

    Once I moved down here though the inspection thing became separate from the tags and the entire inspection was at most places where they would write down your license, take your 5 dollars, scrape off your old sticker and apply the new one. It took 10 years before I found a place that actually inspected the car and they don't have the machine that tests exhaust but they do the best they can without it. The place that actually inspects cars would  probably flunk these rolling coal idiots just on visual means alone.

    I'm glad they are ruining their vehicles with this, I hope every last one of their vehicles dies and cannot be repaired.

      But only for cars registered in certain counties/zip codes in the Chicago area and St. Louis area. If you are in one of these areas, you have to pass the emissions test before you can renew your license plates...so that's probably why I haven't seen this up here.

      I would not be surprised if this is a thing in the much-redder Downstate areas where emissions tests aren't required.

      Yes we can! Yes we did! Yes we will!
