chp..smog check in westchester/lax

luckily in my work car on Manchester blvd + Lincoln blvd this morning.
come up on a CHP 'smog inspection/general violations' setup...first time i have seen one, scary, it nearly gave me a panic attack thinking what if i were in the M 'without a couple cats', oh the old honda days are haunting me......would they have pulled me over? at the time they had an old gardeners van in the inspection bay.
anyone get 'busted' by one of these inspection sites?

You have to remember that these sites are voluntary only. If they ask you to pull over you need to do so but they can't force you to test your car. All you have to do is tell them you don't have time and they have to let you be on your way.

it almost looked like a portable 'dyno' machine...lol.
there was a driveup ramp, roller front, and they had a big fan up front...along with a few sniffing machines on wheels with long cords...
