To the Editor:
Governor Northam has suggested removing the requirement for mandatory vehicle inspections in Virginia.
As a retired Deputy Chief of Police I strongly oppose that idea, and request that legislators vote against it. I recently returned from a visit to Tennessee, a state without vehicle inspections, and it was amazing how many cars and trucks were driving with burnt out lights, severely cracked windshields, and I do not know how many dangerous unseen conditions, such as worn brakes, broken motor mounts, bad shocks, etc.
Please Google “proposal to eliminate vehicle inspections in Virginia” for many other reactions.
