ASA’s mechanical leaders met with their members of Congress and staff to discuss the importance of periodic motor vehicle safety inspections during the recent Capitol Hill Fly-in.
ASA members proposed ideas for potential federal incentives for states wanting to establish new safety inspection programs or strengthen existing programs. The group also stressed that these inspections could provide an avenue for increased recall awareness.
Bob Wills, ASA’s Mechanical Division director, said: “Our team met with congressional members to discuss vehicle safety inspection and found that many members support these state programs. We’re looking forward to continuing our work with lawmakers to encourage vehicle safety inspection.”
