Receiving a citation is never fun. Even if it is a speeding citation from California’s Highway Patrol it can make you nervous. Sure, there’s the fine. Then there’s the ding to your license, and your insurance will go up. But at least you can keep driving.
SMOG continues to be a major problem in California. Owing to lots of cars, and the nature of our environment, we’re susceptible to SMOG, especially in the LA basin. You, as a station owner, SMOG tech, or someone else in the SMOG industry should be PROUD.
It’s a tough job being a SMOG tech. It’s dirty. It’s close to a lot of pollution, and there are literally thousands upon thousands of cars on California highways. It’s complicated to ensure that they are all in compliance as you make SMOG inspections.
If you watch old movies, especially made-for-TV movies about the law, you’ll often see appeals. They lose in Court one day and appeal to a higher court, to FINALLY see justice done. Well, guess what? You may have the right to appeal many decisions against you by California’s Bureau of Automotive Repair!
