EVALUATION OF THE MICHIGAN TRIAL SUBSTITUTE VEHICLE INSPECTION PROGRAM. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
How effective is the checklane vehicle inspection conducted by the State of Michigan. How effective would a checklane inspection system be that inspected on the average 15% of the state's vehicles, coupled with an increased public awareness campaign. How would such a system compare with a periodic inspection. Which procedure--a moving stopping test or a wheel pull inspection--is better for evaluating the braking system. These are some of the questions addressed by the study conducted by HSRI jointly with the MSP and OHSP during 1975 and 1976.
