This report presents an analysis of costs and benefits associated with Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) programs that could be implemented in Tennessee. Study efforts were limited to geographic areas with populations over 200,000 where National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) are exceeded. These areas are: Nashville (Davidson County), Chattanooga (Hamilton County), Knoxville (Knox County) and Memphis (Shelby County). Four I/M programs administrative options were studied. These were: state administration, contractor administration, county administration and private-garage operations. Only the engine idle-mode option was investigated due to the higher equipment and operating costs of other inspection methods.
