Auto shop techs are in a club by themselves. Who else knows what it’s like to SMOG test cars all day and deal with the specific challenges related to the job? Although auto repair shops can be in competition, individual technicians tend to have each other’s backs. They share stories and advice in chat rooms and group pages. If a technician is confused about a new smog check law? Another poster will list the details and give a quick synopsis. When the new STAR scores are posted, tech’s will chat and brag about high scores while others complain about a drop. How can we relate to this unique tribe of people? Because several lawyers on our team were once SMOG techs themselves. We’re known as THE lawyers to call to dispute an issue with the Bureau of Automotive Repair.
A frequent topic of discussion is the Bureau of Automotive Repair and how to fight back. This is where the clan truly becomes a support group. Tech’s share their personal stories and frustrations. They alert others when a specific “trap cars” are making the rounds at nearby SMOG shops. Posters will upload informative photos of undercover cars and what might be under the hood, like illegal performance chips. If a SMOG tech posts about receiving an accusation letter, it could be time to consider reaching out to a different team of experts.
