PennDOT Implements Local Vehicle Emissions Inspections.

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) recently joined with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to implement federally mandated vehicle emissions inspections in Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties beginning the first of the month for most gasoline-powered vehicles from 1975 and newer.

According to PennDOT, more than 343,000 vehicles in Lancaster County, 95,000 in Lebanon County and 307,000 in York County will be subject to the inspections, which will be required once a year during the time of the annual safety inspection.

"Not all vehicles will be required to pass an emissions inspection this month because expirations of safety inspections are spread out over a 12-month period," said PennDOT Bureau of Motor Vehicles director Kurt Myers.
