Help bring back the safety portion of the Inspection Program in New Jersey

Recommended Posts

We need your help!

 

As you may be aware, back in July of 2010 the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commissioner did away with the safety portion of the state's inspection program.

 

Here is the PR:http://www.state.nj.us/mvc/PressReleases/archives/2010/071610.htm

 

 

MVC Chief Encourages Vehicle Owner Responsibility as State Inspection Program Changes August 1

(TRENTON) – Beginning August 1, biennial passenger vehicle inspections will entail only an emissions check and the exemption for new and used vehicles four years old or newer will be extended to five years under program changes announced today by New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Chief Administrator Raymond P. Martinez. The changes, which will produce an approximate annual savings of $17 million, will take effect as the MVC continues its efforts to encourage vehicle owner responsibility and regular maintenance through its NJ Inspections public education campaign. ...

 

The savings never materialized, two years later NJ.com reported that the state had lost over $12mm in savings:

Report: N.J. missed out on $12M in savings since ending mandatory auto inspections

When New Jersey ended auto safety inspections more than two years ago, the state estimated it would save more than $11 million a year.

It hasn’t worked out that way.

A report released today by the state auditor, Stephen Eels, found the Motor Vehicle Commission has missed out on $12.6 million in savings since the inspections were discontinued in August 2010. ...

 

We need data to support our position to restore the safety inspection in New Jersey!

 

If you have any highly neglected vehicles coming into your shop and the owners refuse to repair their vehicle please let us know. Document the record, so we can share it with our legislators!

 

People are driving thousands of cars that are highly neglected on our roads endangering everyone's lives.

 

Please email us with your concerns at [email protected] so we can push forward with this initiative.

 

Get involved, we hope to hear from you now.
