very true and we all have a vested interest in making sure our vehicles are in top running condition. but that's really not the point, is it? if every state started throwing up these sorts of "rules" interstate commerce would grind to a halt. what's next...no gas/diesel powered vehicles allowed? what's your business in our state? and in our increasingly partisan world it's not a stretch to imagine...papers...papers, please.

we have no desire to go to CA for anything but as I wrote we have to. my BIL passed last week and we're his only immediate family. so we'll be going to clean out and put his condo up for sale and to close out his other affairs. but we want to get in, get it done and scram. CA in it's present condition has nothing to offer us.

I would say I would expect an exemption for tourists ... but I’m not so sure anymore. The part I read was an obd test which could be done quickly, but the part I noticed was the “cost” was yet to be determined. The word cost caught my eye , as in enter and pay a test fee to come into the state. California.. always on the leading edge!

Just one more reason to never go there and not spend a penny of my money in that state.

“I would say I would expect an exemption for tourists...”

Why? California doesn’t exempt tourists from the ban on bringing in some types of fruit and vegetables. As stated above, if your diesel is running properly....

Kali just keeps adding to the list of reasons NEVER to visit or spend money there.

So.....first they are checking for fruit coming into the state, now they want to test out of state vehicles? what`s next, paying an extra tax for the fuel in your tank while you are in Cali? draining your fresh water, so you can buy water from in state? paying a tax on the food you bring in because you arent buying it in state? where does it end. there are a few things I want to see in Cali, but if this keeps up, I wont be setting foot there!

And don't forget the 18 wheelers, which would really clog the border.

Speculation probably has all this way blown out of proportion.

Very true. But it's so much more dramatic and fun that way! [emoticon]
