Drive-Clean program changes
The province appears set to put the breaks on the Drive-Clean program. Currently, you're required to have your vehicle checked for harmful emissions as soon as the vehicle is 5 years old. But several news reports today say the age is being pushed back to 7 years. The rationale is apparently that new technology is improving the tests.
It is significant news for drivers. The test costs $30 every 2 years. If the car fails, repairs and adjustments can cost hundreds of dollars. We spoke with George Iny, the head of the Automobile Protection Agency, to talk about the impact of the new regulations on drivers and on the environment.
