EVALUATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE EMISSIONS INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS IN OHIO. PHASE III

Recent data for the State of Ohio indicates that the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for CO and Ox will not be attained in all areas of the state by 1982, even if all reasonably available control technologies are applied. In view of this, it is likely that the state will request from U.S. EPA an extension of the compliance date beyond 1982. In order for this request to be considered, the state must, among other things, have adopted a firm schedule for implementing a motor vehicle inspection and maintenance (I/M) program in the highly urbanized nonattainment areas. In this connection, the State of Ohio is currently planning for the implementation of an I/M program. As part of this effort, detailed analyses have been performed of the costs, benefits, personnel requirements, direct and indirect impacts, and scheduling requirements associated with the particular program option being considered. This document reports these analyses.
