Missouri State Sen. David Sater (R-29) has introduced legislation that would dilute the Missouri State Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection Program by eliminating the requirement that all motor vehicles obtain a biennial
certificate of inspection, and instead be inspected triennially. Missouri Senate Bill 136 has not been addressed in a committee as of yet.
The Automotive Service Association (ASA) opposes these changes to the Missouri Motor Vehicle Safety Inspection Program. The bill’s effect would be to create less-safe highways in Missouri more accidents
leading to loss of property, more injuries and possibly more deaths.
State government studies of vehicle safety inspection programs in Missouri and Pennsylvania have indicated that inspection programs deter accidents, injuries and deaths.
ASA asks Missouri repairers to contact their legislators and express their opposition to S.B. 136.
