This will be interesting. This has been coming for some time. Another way to get $$ from drivers. Not a 100% sure if this will help or not. With the programmers and chips available and given that each are removable, the trucks will probably pass the 'test'. Afterward, they will be re-installed and many trucks will still blow smoke.

Very true. The only issue we will have is getting caught driving with the tunes. That's where it would get expensive.

They've already passed legislation that commercial trucks can only idle for 5 mins then there is a huge fine they can nail you with.

You'd better stand up for your rights or you'll be hit with this too.
