Santa Monica, CA – January 31, 2016. Automotive Defense Specialists, a California law firm of attorneys with expertise in Bureau of Automotive Repair criminal cases, is proud to announce new coverage on its blog concerning both braking and brake light systems for California SMOG check stations and participants in its STAR program who may be concerned about undercover car activity.
“We have seen an uptick in concern over possible criminal liability by California Brake and Lamp station owners as well as technicians,” explained William Ferreira of the Specialized Law Firm of Automotive Defense Specialists. “Our blog is meant to make commentary on industry issues, and among the newer issues is a possible expansion by the Bureau into brake and lamp inspection prosecutions.”

More than SMOG is a Concern to those Regulated by the Bureau of Automotive Repair
With the Bureau of Automotive Repair stepping up enforcement of California’s complex regulations regarding SMOG check stations, including those participating in the so-called STAR program, there is increasing interest in both administrative and criminal potential actions. While most of the attention is on a) the SMOG Check issues as well as related STAR program issues, and b) on administrative law problems, the blog series touches on possible growing concern on brake and lamp inspections. The reality is that both brake and lamp technicians and stations may be required (and thus face either administrative or possibly even criminal action) with respect to testing the brake and lamp systems of vehicles that come into their shop. In addition to reading the firm’s blog, interested parties are urged to reach out directly to the firm’s attorneys for information.
