This is a very good article about a serious situation. I understand where the article is going but these stations usa.ly are for just the big boys. I think we need to go with every state having inspection both full time at service stations on the road when entering and leaving on major highways and spot checks to control the unsafe light duty vehicles on the road used by contractors and couriers alike. Bald tires bad engines no suspensions overloaded everyday. Maybe not on the highway but on side and service roads all the time. Police seem to ignore them. Because upkeep and inspection stations cost money. We seem to forget that making a living is important but human lives are worth a lot more I think.
We are all guilty of this from time to time. Who doesn’t run on a donut longer than they should or push the tires far longer than they should have because they need money for new ones. The lights on the dash yet we ignore it till the car rally acts up again because of finances . Which why this plea is very important. Take a read vA Plea for Periodic Motor Vehicle Inspection (PMVI).
