Subject: <OT> Calif Smog Cert Story
Scroll down now if you're bored by California smog certificate trivia.
My annual registration renewal with the dreaded words SMOG CERT REQUIRED
arrived in November (due in February). After S.B. 42 passed in December,
I wrote "Exempt from smog cert. per S.B. 42" on the renewal notice and
sent it in. Late in December I got a stern notice from the DMV
acknowledging my renewal and directing me to get a smog certificate.
I waited until S.B. 42 took effect in January, then returned the notice
with the same affectionate personalization. My validated registration
arrived last week.
"We're from the guvment, and we're here to help you."
