A bus may travel 100,000 miles or more in a year, in stop and go traffic.
A motorhome is unlikely to accrue more than a few thousand miles in a year, largely on freeways and highways with few stops, although there are a few owner who do substantially more.
A four times a year testing regimen is pure harassment, nothing more.

Another reason not to go to the left coast.

Tons of pollution in the LA/LB port area for multiple reasons. Most of these trucks will be electric in a few years so no real burden on them. Testing the MH seems a bit overboard for minimal use case. But many of these HD vehicles are exempt and it will be a PITN as this initially get underway same as the first testing of autos in the 1980s.

Going to make a huge improvement in air quality.

Good lord. When will it stop?

That is a rhetorical question because the answer is NEVER.

4 times a year for an RV. Really? It matters not that it's a five minute or 50 minute inspection, Im sure you guys will be charged an arm and a leg, and every three months for an RV is noting more than pure harassment as PButler says.

Guys - you better be careful on what you say on this thread. I posted gas price difference between California and Georgia. And stated in all honesty I was sorry for y'all out in Cali. Thread didn't last long.

I believe that was Orcadrvers response about pure harassment, and he screwed up the quote/post, however I agree.

Your thread was not shut down, it was totally deleted. Apparently when Time2Roll judged my social standing by asking if I was allowed to have a burn barrel or not. I am allowed, but tires will not fit into it, so I burn them in the pasture along with the plastic pallets. These greenies on here should sell their trailers and tow vehicles and buy tents to pack into an EV, so we know they're seriously walking the walk. Don't hold your breath lol.


I have a burn barrel in my yard.

Apparently this is what the citizens of California wanted or they would not have voted for the people that have enacted these regulations. Basically you get what you voted for.

Nobody is denying you your right to recreate in a big RV. They are simoly trying to stop you from poluting the earth while you do it.


I average 1400 miles per year, so every 350 miles I will have to get a smog check, for what? Even if I did 10,000 miles per year, it is not going to pollute any more or less by getting it tested more, I have never failed a smog test. Makes no sense.

I agree to a point but CARB is its own entity and does not bend to the will of the people, they pretty much do what they want.

For those who didn't "live it"-
I grew up on Southern California in the 60's and 70's. In the 60's we used to go to my Grandma's house in the San Gabriel Valley. The San Gabriel Mountains were 20 miles away as the crow flies. In the summer time I used to play outside and the air was so filthy I couldn't see those mountains just 20 miles away and my throat would hurt severely. Fast forward to today-the population has DOUBLED since I grew up there and there are more vehicles registered there than any where else in the Country. The air is cleaner than it's EVER BEEN. All because of CARB mandates-that were so successful by the way they were adopted by several other states. I have since retired and moved out of state-taking my massive equity with me. Yea say what you will but quite frankly you cannot by any stretch argue with the results. So yea-camp elsewhere.
