    Default Anyone heard of OBD III?

    My friend told me about OBD III so I went home and googled OBD III and
    I was shocked at what read. They are planning to make a so called "Big
    Brother" where if your check engine light goes on, the police will
    know. They can pull you over and give you a citation if not fixed.
    Also I heard it can check where you are and if you are speeding.

    Default Anyone heard of OBD III?

    Vehicles have had that capability at least since 2000. Eventually, where
    there are enough of the newer vehicles on the road, there will roadside
    sensors much like they currently have for trucks at weigh stations where
    they need not stop, to determine if your vehicle is polluting and you will
    no longer have required emission inspections. The information is only
    recorded for around eight to ten seconds. Read you owners manual, that
    information is in there.

    If you dive by and the sensor picks up your car as a polluter, you will be
    sent an order to have your vehicle inspected and repaired within thirty
    days. If you do not you will be required to send in you license plate
    until you have the problem corrected.

    It is only 20 in Delaware for an "Antique" plate and 25 in Pennsylvania for
    an "Historic" plate. One can get a "Classic" plate in Pennsylvania after
    ten years, if it is a "special interest" model that is no longer produced.
    There are ten year old Corvettes, T-Birds and Cougars running around with
    "Classic" plates. Use in limited however.

    They have had those roadside sniffers here for a few years. Nothing
    new
    really..
    But I don't see them doing away with smog tests. It's a source of
    revenue.. :/ The sniffers here are mainly to find the "gross
    polluters".
    I remember I passed one one day with my 68 Ford truck. It has no
    emissions gear at all, but I guess it was good enough for gov work
    being as I never got a notice in the mail. There is no emissions test
    required for either one of my old trucks being as they are both over
    25 years old. But they can be yanked off the road as a gross polluter
    if that were the case, and you passed and flunked a sniffer machine.
    Or got pulled over for excessive smoke, etc..
    That truck runs like new though, and I wouldn't expect it to flunk.
    BTW, the ones I have seen are on small trailers. I guess they have
    built in cameras or video to spot the tag numbers.
