Auto Associations Oppose Missouri Legislation Eliminating Vehicle Safety Inspections

The Automotive Service Association (ASA), Auto Care Association (ACA), and the Tire Industry Association (TIA) have joined to oppose Missouri House Bill 451 that would repeal the requirement that all motor vehicles must obtain an inspection before the vehicle may be licensed. The ASA, ACA, and TIA all support periodic motor vehicle inspections, as it enhances safety and prevents injuries to the motoring public. Regular safety inspections by a qualified technician can identify and repair most safety issues that can arise from normal wear and tear on a vehicle. Without a vehicle safety inspection program in place, these normal wear and tear issues will go unnoticed and put the motoring public at risk.
