Eliminate or modify state vehicle inspections
Petition by Sen Maile Shimabukuro, MoveOn.org
To be delivered to The Hawaii State House and The Hawaii State Senate
Eliminate or modify the motor vehicle inspection program. Too many Hawai'i residents cannot afford our strict standards.
There are currently 4,581 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!
Too many residents cannot afford to keep their older vehicles on the road when new car standards are applied to them. The U.S. Government Accountability Office, the research arm of Congress, issued a 2014 report saying it can find no definitive evidence that mandatory inspection programs reduce accidents, noting crash rates are about the same in states that have them as in those that do not.
