The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that 28 states and the District of Columbia will need to implement vehicle Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) programs in order to comply with the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977. In addition, several areas already have I/M programs. Each I/M program is unique. Its design is strongly influenced by the local economic and political factors and less so by the technical factors. However, in planning for an I/M program, there are basic issues that need to be addressed. The main intent of this study is to provide state agency administrators and technical personnel with information which will aid them in the implementation of an inspection/maintenance program. The report is divided into two sections: The first is a narrative discussion of the results of the survey. Section two contains tables that summarize the different aspects of an inspection/maintenance program.
