DISCUSSION OF THE SELECTION COVERAGE AND FREQUENCY ALTERNATIVES IN INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS
Automobile Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) program managers are faced with many decisions when designing and implementing an emissions inspection program on how to best serve the needs of their local area. All of these decisions are impacted by both technical and socio-economic considerations. This report will examine those decisions which concern the coverage of the program and the frequency of inspection. Specifically, this report addresses the concerns surrounding the selection of the geographic area, vehicle classes, and model years included in the program. Additionally this report discusses the impact of including change-of-ownership inspection and/or random roadside checks along with the annual cycle.
