New emissions tests raise questions

(08/07/03) NORWALK - The new emissions tests are set to start in September, but the new program is bringing many changes and raising several questions.

By this point, all state residents should have received a post card from the Department of Motor Vehicles that tells you were to find information regarding testing dates, and how to find out where to go for testing. However, many residents say they haven't received the card, and many still don't know what changes are being made.

A spokesman from the DMV says for residents to keep an eye on their mailboxes for notices regarding emissions testing. According the spokesman, there will be 300 emissions test stations throughout the state located at gas stations and car dealerships, and the testing process will begin by September 19. However, some gas stations have yet to receive the necessary testing equipment, and many employees still need to be trained.

The new emissions test is expected to cost $20. Click here for more information on the Connecticut Emissions Program.
