SMOG CHECK PROGRAM
While driving to our Van Nuys Smog center for your biennial smog check, you may be wondering how this all came about.
Due to the ever-increasing pollution in our air, Congress passed the Federal Clean Air Act in 1970, which set quality standards for the entire nation. The Act required that any areas in the country not meeting those standards, had to implement certain emissions control procedures…or, they would lose their Federal building and highway funds. Since California did not meet those standards, in 1982, it decided to put into effect an emissions inspection policy…now referred to as, the “Smog Check Program”.
The purpose of this program therefore, is to uphold California’s emission laws by identifying and weeding-out which vehicles are polluting. This is accomplished by the use of a state-of-the-art exhaust gas analyzer.
In simple terms, it’s like a camera that takes pictures of your vehicles’s exhaust, then translates it into information that a smog technician can read, understand, and evaluate.
But, enough techno-talk. All you really need to know is, at SMOG ZONE, your Van Nuys emission test will afford you of all the state-of-the-art equipment needed, and our skilled and knowledgeable technicians will provide fast, but efficient service…not to mention the courtesy and honesty of our staff.
So, the next time you see that dreaded, “Smog Check Required” on your DMV renewal, just consider it a great opportunity for you to make sure your vehicle’s engine is running at optimum levels.
Come see us…the best Smog Test-Only station in Van Nuys.
