The Automotive Service Association (ASA) opposes MS H.B. 151 which repeals the Mississippi annual safety inspection of motor vehicles program and includes additional language on the tinting of windows. If the bill becomes law, it will take effect July 11, 2011.

Mississippi has an annual decentralized safety inspection program. Less than half the states in the United States have safety inspection programs despite studies in Pennsylvania and Missouri that have indicated the value of safety inspection programs in reducing accidents, injuries and deaths. The federal government has not shown interest in promoting state safety inspection programs or in evaluating their value in reducing accidents, injuries and deaths.

ASA encourages independent repairers to go to the ASA legislative website, www.TakingTheHill, to review the Mississippi legislation.
