Emissions testing set to begin for Connecticut motorists

By the end of the week 14,000 motorists will start receiving notices for their new emissions testing dates. The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles and Agbar Technologies announced Thursday that there are 262 different places scheduled to begin testing, compared to the 25 stations the state had in the past. According to the two companies there will be at least 300 testing centers by December.Operators of the program say the new decentralized testing centers, located in local car garages and dealerships, will make testing a lot more convenient. They also say the new and improved technology will make the testing help prevent problems with fraud. Each center will have a computerized system operated by Agbar. Customers will be able to watch their tests with monitoring system and each tester will have to pass a retina scanner before the test can begin. Testing starts September 19.
