Here is the background for this release. An agency such as the Bureau of Automotive Repair might send a accusation letter to a SMOG shop for a quick response. The letter may be written in “legalese,” and be a challenge for the average station owner to understand, let alone respond to in a timely and legally correct manner. Violation letters from the Bureau of Automotive Repair could be a real threat to a SMOG business. A citation could result in hefty fines, and a STAR violation letter might shut down a business. It may be essential to speak to a Bureau of Automotive Repair defense lawyer before responding.

In the SMOG business, an intimidating letter from the Bureau of Automotive Repair can have costly consequences. Yet, on the other hand, the letter might also turn out to be a ‘paper tiger’ depending on the evidence in the case. To accurately access an accusation letter, a Bureau of Automotive Repair defense lawyer might need to review the situation at both a factual and legal level. For these reasons, Automotive Defense Specialists released a new blog post on this important topic.
