The Economic Effectiveness of Vehicle Inspection/Maintenance as a Means for Reducing Exhaust Emissions: A Quantitative Appraisal (Report on CRC-APRAC Project CAPE-13-68) 740131

A program of vehicle inspection and maintenance has emerged as potential strategy for reducing harmful exhaust emissions from automobiles. Of the several short-term approaches now available for controlling vehicular emissions, an inspection program has the capacity for affecting the largest number of vehicles within the population. The purpose of this study is to attempt to characterize the economic effectiveness of a mandatory inspection maintenance program. Results from this analysis will show that under proper conditions an inspection program can serve as a viable component of an emission control strategy.
