Pulled over by BAR today, more then just visual inspections

Tried to do a search for BAR (Bureau Auto Repair) but BAR was too short.

Driving down the road today and came across a check point with a couple officers and some BAR technicians who were spot checking Diesel cars/trucks.

Looked under the hood, looked under the truck (CAT and DPF visual). Connected to the OBDII port. Stuck a probe in the exhaust. Finished with a test on soot levels which involved some sort of white material which was drawn over the exhaust tip. Had me rev it a few times then they removed the piece and measured the amount of discoloration due to soot, I'm guessing.

Guess I was ok, but other then the actual smog checks which they are to begin mailing in January with registration renewals, if this is what we will be facing, were ****ed.

Actually, if you take a look at the BAR website, it's now vehicles that way less then 14,000 GVWR. Here's a link to their website, and here's a quote from the page.

Yes, all diesel vehicles over the maximum 14,000 Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) limit will be exempt from the Smog Check Program. Some small motor homes will be subject to the program, but most have a GVWR that exceeds 14,000 pounds. The GVWR is indicated on a label located on the chassis or door jam of the vehicle.
Sad thing is, it's not our trucks that our the problem, it's the freaking semi's.

So far, Nevada, New York and Colorado are following suit or already testing.

I suspect, the only reason it's being done is that it's another source of income due to the fact that diesel is becoming an alternative fuel source for private vehicle use rather then strictly commercial use.

That's probably closer to truth than one might think.
