When you run a SMOG shop it seems that you are under constant threat from the Bureau of Automotive Repair. From the point of view of someone in your business, it would appear that the BAR is constantly out to “get” you one way or another.
Certainly, there have to be standards – that is only right. It is also true that there are people out there who cut corners one way or another and they shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it. But using undercover cars that have one thing or another wrong with them does seem to be a bit over the top. However, that is the way things are in California and we have to live with them.
The fact is that if you receive a Citation from the BAR you may need help. You may need a Bureau of Automotive Repair defense lawyer, and that means that you may need William Ferreira at Automotive Defense Specialists.
The sad fact is that SMOG testing can be very complicated and so is the law surrounding it. This is why you need a Bureau of Automotive Repair defense lawyer who understands the law and is able to pick his way through it. The BAR sends out thousands of Citations each year throughout the state so if you are on the receiving end of one, don’t try and handle it yourself. You could be digging yourself into a very big hole.
