Newer cars may bypass emissions testing
By Kerri Bartlett, Assistant Editor

The legislation would apply to owners of vehicles in six Tennessee counties where emissions testing is required, including Williamson. The Herald hit the streets to find out what passersby have to say about the bill.

“I think it’s a good thing. If a car is serviced and up to date, it’s an unnecessary expense. I just bought a new car, and I think after three years is a good time to test.”
Arielle Snyder, Franklin
“I think that all cars should be inspected once a year because it helps the atmosphere. We live in Myrtle Beach where cars are not inspected at all, which I think is bad for the environment.”
Joseph Manfredi, Myrtle Beach, S.C.
“I am for anything that could help clean the environment. If emissions control can do that, then I am for it.”
James Henerickson, Minnesota
“I think that it’s a good plan. It will reduce lines. A new car is up to standard anyway.”
Emily Bell, Franklin
