This report presents an analysis of alternative motor vehicle emission inspection and maintenance programs for the following metropolitan areas: Davenport, Iowa; Des Moines, Iowa; Omaha, Nebraska-Council Bluffs, Iowa; Wichita, Kansas; and Johnson and Wyandotte Counties in Kansas (Kansas City area). The study methodology is described. The study included collecting data, determining criteria for selecting alternative program configurations, screening program options, and evaluating alternative configurations selected through the screening process. Program alternatives were evaluated in terms of emissions reductions attainable, geographic coverage, effective motor vehicle population, inspection frequency, consumer protection, quality assurance, costs and financial feasibility. The ease of implementing different alternatives was also studied.
