WASHINGTON (May 8, 2015) — Leaders of the Automotive Service Association's Mechanical Division met with members of Congress and congressional staff late in April to discuss the importance of periodic motor vehicle safety inspections.
ASA members suggested the federal government provide incentive for states to establish vehicle inspection programs or strengthen existing programs, the ASA said. The group also stressed that such inspections could provide an avenue for increased recall awareness.
Only 17 states have some form of period vehicle inspection law, the ASA said.
“Our team met with congressional members to discuss vehicle safety inspection, and found that many members support these state programs,” said Bob Wills, ASA Mechanical Division director.
“We're looking forward to continuing our work with lawmakers to encourage vehicle safety inspection.”
The ASA is a not-for-profit trade association dedicated to and governed by independent automotive service and repair professionals.
