It goes by many names, depending on where you are and who you’re talking to: smog checks, emissions tests, dirty-polluter threshold exams. Okay, we made that last one up – but it sounds pretty legitimate, doesn’t it? Whatever you call it – a smog and emissions test is a requirement in almost every state. But […]
