NJ Next Generation Emissions Inspection


Recommended Posts

State of NJ gearing up for the end of Parsons contract may be using Ezpass for emmission inspection!

 

 

ERG is going to look at all possibilities for the Next Generation Emissions Inspection Program. The options include:

1). Keep the present hybrid system we have now, utilizing both Central Inspection Facilities (CIFs) and Private Inspection Facilities (PIFs).

2). Move to a PIF ONLY system and eliminate CIFs, and sell the real estate that the CIFs presently occupy.

3). Move to a CIF only system and eliminate PIFs, (which is extremely unlikely).

4). Begin moving to ELECTRONIC style emissions testing that could be performed as easily as motorists driving thru EZ Pass. This could include emissions kiosks where motorists hook up to a computer and perform their own emissions test.

 

Included is a link to a survey for the new program!

Jim, Great to hear from you and great post!

 

How to feel about the electronic testing? Could this be a proving ground for the rest of the states. Also, I find it interesting how many states are debating wheather they should keep the Safety Inspection and here NJ is looking into more emssions monitoring. And possible tieing it to EZ pass? I find it strange...

      Having been a shop owner for 41 years, I have lived through many economic swings, both good and bad.  I can tell you that increases in prices, from gas to food to new car prices, can prove to be a good thing for auto repair shops. 
      People tend to tighten their belts during tough economic times, but also understand that they need their cars in the best shape they can be to save on fuel and save on costly breakdowns. 
      How can you help your customers save on fuel costs and focus on preventive maintenance?

      According to studies from Northwestern, Birdeye, and other companies, people are most influenced by reviews with an average rating of 4.2 to 4.5 stars out of 5 — making this the ideal average star rating for purchase probability.
      Having all 5-star Google reviews can work against you.  People may not trust a company with all 5-star reviews. No business is perfect, and you cannot please everyone. Also, people make mistakes.
      Having negative reviews is not the end of the world, in fact, it may actually help your business.

      With so many different models on the roads these days and the challenges of obtaining all the necessary training, tools, and technical information, should auto repair shops consider narrowing their focus on fewer makes and models?  
      Is "All Makes, All Models" really achievable today?
