||This report presents a costs analysis of a decentralized vehicle emissions inspection and maintenance (I/N) program for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The analysis was performed on a life-cycle costs basis and considered the effects of inflation, growth in the vehicle fleet and labor rate escalation on the costs of the program. Elements which are specifically addressed include necessary modifications to the current inspection to accommodate I/M, incremental capital and operating costs which would be incurred by the state and private garages with the addition of I/M to the current safety inspection, impacts of I/M on the vehicle inspection fee, and changes required to upgrade the current safety inspection to meet Federal VIU standards, and the impact of these changes on the inspection fee.
