4. Bozita is correct, we don't have it any longer
The worst emissions offenders were usually exempt-old cars owned by the poor (presentation of a medicaid card made one exempt) and trucks.

It was proven at one point that emissions levels in Kent County were as high as the three counties that were having testing done (Wayne, Oakland and Macomb). Other counties were getting higher levels than they used to.

Yeah, the test was only $10, but the repairs could be expensive, especially on a paid-for car that was built in the 80s. All that emissions control and computer stuff was new in cars then and it broke down easily.
