  • State inspection in Florida

    Posted by dave444hold on June 17, 2015 at 8:44 am

    I would love to see a state (safety) inspection in Florida. Similar to Pa. or NJ.

    Does anyone have any ideas how to get this accomplished?

    Interesting question. Here in Michigan we had random safety inspections a very long time ago (60’s – 70’s). Shops did not do them – instead the State Police set up road blocks and inspected them right there.

    Part of the state had emissions testing (80’s – 90’s). 
    Today we have nothing. I am skeptical of government doing things like this. We do have shop and tech licensing (I’ve spent well over $20K in fees so far – I think ASA would have made better use of that money).
    I’d be interested to hear pro and con from shop owners in states that have safety inspections.
