Revamped vehicle emissions program not ready for prime time

The Jalisco government is taking its time to implement the redesigned verificación vehicular (emissions testing) program in the state.

The mandatory program was put on hold at the beginning of last year in order to find a more efficient and workable alternative.

The program came in for criticism for various reasons: testing equipment not up to standard, corruption at the private inspection stations and poor enforcement by traffic authorities.

The revised system will see the installation of two inspection hubs to be operated by a new decentralized agency known as the Agencia Integral para la Regulación de Emisiones (AIRE), as well as the creation of a new list of authorized testing stations, which will carry out the checks with updated equipment.
