California - Pulled Over For Computer Check
Ok so this is a strange one.
I was with one of my co-workers yesterday in his super duty (2007) and he was pulled over by a CHP officer. When pulled over, the officers brought a scanning tool and and said they were inspecting all diesel trucks coming through. I was like, what the hell? My co-worker has nothing done to his truck, so no big deal. Took 5 minutes. This is the first I've heard of an inspection like this and it sure made me paranoid. Basically they're scanning for smog equipment tampering. The officer didn't even conduct a visual inspection under the truck for exhaust mods, he went straight to the plug-in port to plug in his tool. This was obviously not his first rodeo. Is this becoming standard practice???
We're both in the market for 6.7L that we would most likely mod. This experience though made me reconsider as the fines are pretty hefty, so I hear.
We were in Los Angeles, on a surface street. This is a non-commercial truck. Basically stock but with aftermarket wheels/tires.
Anyone else run into this?
