So here in Illinois they require emissions tests on vehicles over 4 years old before you can renew your license plates. The related bureaucracy provides a good living for a bunch of unemployables, no doubt, and the laws concerning what actually goes in to the gasoline ensure we have the highest gas prices in the nation. Of course that doesn't concern the people who actually make these laws most of whom drive official vehicles and get all their gas paid by the working man.
The result is I've had to drive 20 miles to a testing station and am now sat in a slow-moving line of about a hundred idling vehicles waiting my turn for the test. Great for the environment or what?
When are people going to wake up and realize how much better life would be without these lying, sleazy, corrupt parasites in government? Maybe they should start by looking at connections between the suppliers of emissions testing equipment and government employees. Just a thought.
