Do not government inspect private cars condition?PCP
Yes, but that is left up to the states indigually and there are many variations. Some like Alaska, Montana, Texas....there is little real inspection except brakes. Some like Pa, MD California it is more extenisve. Each state sets its qualifications and its not very strict. Each state also has different poluultion control standards too...even some states the counties are different.

The government here is less likely to set national standards for many reasons. Unlike European countries it is hard to police because of the immense size is one. Getting politicians to agree on a national policy will be next to impossible. Getting them to place restrictive regs is almost considered by some un-American Its hard to have concensus here..
