Smog Check Point on Campus Drive in Irvine Today

Just an FYI, if you are catless, stay off of Campus Drive in Irvine today!

Luckily, I was traveling the other way this morning!

They can't make you stop anyway. It's purely voluntary.

What? Really? I heard that it was "random", every third car or something. And people in blue cars with loud smelly exhausts...

Yup. They can't MAKE you do it. They just won't tell you that you don't have to.

Wow, so I have the right to tell them I don't want to participate. It's still kind of scary because then they play hardball and pull out all the stops to nail you.

Apparently. Although, with all of the resources they are devoting to this, I'd be surprised if they break even.

Correct unless the laws have changed. Just tell them you don't have time or something.

Hmmm, just found this:

http://www.autorepair.ca.gov/80_BARR...8_10_2010l.pdf

But why do they have CHP officers out there if it's just a voluntary fact finding mission?

It's cause the CHP are the ones who control the traffic.

Yep, sorry, I guess the sarcasm and skepticism didn't come across the internets.

I am doing some reading and it seems like people who choose not to participate get cited one way or another but it appears that fighting it usually works.
