A regulatory agency in California may intend to help the ‘greater good,’ yet innocent parties can get trapped along with rule breakers.

Indeed, it may be essential to scrutinize smog testing shops to ensure compliance with clean air standards. At times, the process for catching a cheater can unintentionally accuse an above-board, professional technician.
