Inspection Facility to Make Way for Service Stations

The next time your DC-garaged vehicle needs an inspection you may not have to trundle on down to the Inspection Facility in Southwest DC, a place reviled by my District-dwelling friends. Much like surrounding Maryland and Virginia, DC Drivers may get to use one of 90 DC Gas Stations for inspections instead of the lone facility on Half Street.

There are some concerns to be worked out, still, including how to get service stations to bite on a $200,000 dynamometer, and how to justify an 80% increase in the cost of the inspection (to $45), but proposals will be explored and a recommendation made in March.
