Car Inspection in Kentucky
While Kentucky did adopt a vehicle emissions testing program for three northern counties in 1999, the requirement ended in late 2005 with an emergency regulation signed by Governor Ernie Fletcher.
The governor cited improved quality of air and the potential to use other methods of reducing air pollutants as the reason for the program's end.
