New Smog Info for Diesels in California

I have just read this legislative update from the BAR and it states that starting 2010 all diesel vehicles up to gvwr of 8500 lbs will be subject to biennial smog checks. This includes a visual inspection and a tail pipe inspection.

Some states are now passing legislation to address registering vehicle else where. Colorado made it a class 6 felony to falsify vehicle registation, ie, registering it to avoid emmissions regulations in the county where you reside. Check your state laws first.
