CHP smog checkpoints - city of industry valley blvd

Watch out people.

Ran into a smog checkpoint 3 days ago on valley blvd & temple. Good thing they were having a break so I got through.

This sucks I have the akrapovic full exhaust. It's only a matter of time before I get into trouble.

The repercussions of living in beautiful "Left-Wing" California. I honestly feel bad for you gents. I would be appalled and absolutely furious that a state as bankrupt as California is paying LEO to stand on a corner and check for "smog polluters". What a sin.

You know you don't have to stop for those, right?

Or at least you don't have to submit -

That article shows how the US Supreme Court said the state DOES have the right to perform DUI check points at the "minor" risk of infringing on civil liberties.

I would only recommend not stopping at any check point, Smog or DUI, if your desire is to be chased down by police. Have a gun pointed at you, and thrown in the back of a police cruiser.

It's unreal the fvcked up things our state is doing to make a dollar. The worst are the parking cops, those people are as worthless as they come.
