My truck can't pass because my parking brake foot pedal is a little loose - and the parking brake light comes on because it sags juuuust enough to trip the switch.

I showed the guy that you can just touch the pedal from behind and the light goes off. (the parking brake works just fine mind you)

But - this is state government and they are all knowing and all powerful. If that light is on, you fail.

The REASON the light is on doesn't matter.

I know it's a simple fix - but for the love of god. Couldn't we introduce a little common sense to the process????

And Jay - if you continue having trouble with the light, you can do what most of my friends do with thier older vehicles - snip the wire and be done with it.

We are talking government here... Government 'not equal' common sense. End of story. Case in point (sort of)... The dear old folks that built my current house back in the late forties, and kept the 100 acres that surround my little piece, had passed away and left the land to their daughter who still lives nearby. She had it all surveyed and put up a fence between my property and hers and down the far west side. I'm out in the barn yard and this pickup drives up the driveway and stops with a grumpy old guy inside. He says I'm from the county engineer's office. Your fence is too close to the road. It has to be 40 feet from the center line and that first post is 39 feet. Really?, I say. I let him ramble on a bit about setbacks and right-of-ways and public safety and such then tell him: well, that's all nice but it's not my fence. The look he gave was priceless. He says: who does own it? Where do they live? I just tell him I don't know who owns it now and don't know them or where they live. He drives off in a huff worrying about the fence post that's one foot too close. Not enough to do I suppose. Forgot to mention that the fence is perpendicular to the road so it's just one post he claimed was out of place.

Back on topic, our area of the state (Central Ohio) doesn't require annual inspection. I guess the air pollution isn't bad enough to require it yet.

funny.

Oh - and by the way - the inspection isn't really about air pollution - not at all!

It's about collecting a fee.
