You may only think about smog and emissions testing as something that the state forces you to do every other year or so, but in reality it is a very useful thing for the environment. Anyone who has ever crossed over a large hill and looked down into a city that is ahead can see the effects of smog on the air. Smog levels can make it difficult to breath, especially for people that already have some form of respiratory defects. Smog is a very visible form of pollution that looks like a mixture between smoke and fog. There are many different pollutants that can produce smog, such as industrial fumes, everyday products such as hair spray and paint, and vehicles. In many large cities, vehicle emissions produce the majority of the smog, and because of this, performing vehicle emissions inspections in Salt Lake City is a smart idea.
Our major cities are becoming polluted by many older cars that are not running up to the standards set by the state. While the state isn’t actually able to force you to take these cars off the road, they can force you to have the car tested for its vehicle emissions. An emissions test is a mandatory test that determines the level at which the vehicle is putting out pollutants that may be dangerous to the environment. If the vehicle exceeds the emissions levels set by the state, it is determined to be a “gross polluter” and will need repairs to make sure that it can pass the test. Most states have programs in place that allow the state to partially or fully pay for any repairs that may be necessary to get the vehicle under the emissions requirement.
