INSPECTION/MAINTENANCE (I/M) PROGRAM AS A VIABLE COST-EFFECTIVE EMISSIONS REDUCTION OPTION
This paper summarizes the actions and results pursuant to the development of a motor vehicle inspection/maintenance program. The general methodology used in collection data, determining criteria, screening program options, and evaluating alternative configurations are presented. General results for various criteria such as: emissions reduction, repair costs, fuel savings, and capital/operating costs are included based on the study findings from a number of states. The basic state administrative option was used as a basis for presenting the data.
