Smog & Emission Checks in North Dakota
North Dakota does not require smog and emission checks. But there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself and your family from overexposure to "bad" air. If the news reports a high-air-pollution alert, here's what you can do:
- Stay indoors as much as possible.
- Ride-share or carpool to and from work.
- Telecommute if possible.
- In the summer, turn up your thermostat to conserve energy.
- Ride a bus, subway, metro line, or other public transportation.
- Ride a bike or walk when possible.
- Don't refuel your vehicle during the hottest part of the day; choose a cooler time if you can.
- Avoid using lawn mowers and other gas-powered equipment on alert days.
- Limit or discontinue use of aerosol products, oil-based paints, and solvents.
