Exclamation MPP ONTARIO PETITION: "SCRAP THE DRIVE CLEAN PROGRAM"

There's an Ontario MPP who has begun a campaign to "SCRAP THE DRIVE CLEAN PROGRAM", with information & petition to sign.

We don't know if this will change anything, but we have to step up and be heard,
it's OUR democratic right.



Check out the website, support the cause.

Is that the equivalent to a Smog check in California?

More than likely not sure how your tests are performed.
This is for vehicles five years and older and the test is done every two years. If your car fails you cannot renew your license plate sticker.

When this program came out decades ago, the emissions were measured through the tailpipe. Since January, they now measure emissions by hooking up the machine to the car's computer. The new test has caused so many problems and false failed readings.

So we can use your province, to make our case?
Has your province suffered any set back, with increased pollution?....I think not

It's not gone yet, but soon. All the new cars they simply plug into the OB2 port and look for emission codes. No tread mill tailpipe check. Followed by them taking $48 for two year pass. Pumpkin will never see Air Scare now.

They changed the system here too, similar to yours, but still concerned. They've already had issues with the new system throwing "fail" codes for no good reason.

Lots of contraversy about the new system, and too many variables that can set off a fail on vertually clean cars...even the dealerships are against the new system.
I hope they fix this before I'm due, and want to see what happens to those of us with mild modifications done to our cars.

We'll see what happens.

UPDATE!

Received the following e-mail from MPP Randy Hillier:



Thank you for signing my petition calling for the end of the Drive Clean program.

On Wednesday, I read our petition into the record of Ontario's Legislature. Over 870 people signed the petition at the time I presented it. You can view video of my introduction of the petition here.

By reading it into the record, all members of the Legislature have the opportunity to hear your concerns. Additionally, the rules of the legislature require the Minister of Environment Jim Bradley to respond to the petition. When I receive his response, I intend on sharing it with you.

This program has run its course. It is obsolete and does nothing except for taxing hard-working car owners across Ontario. Please rest assured that I will continue to fight against this useless tax.

Best regards,

Randy Hillier, MPP
