The new emissions testing, which began on January 1,is performed as a part of annual safety inspections on vehicles that are gasoline-fueled and have a gross vehicle weight rating GVWR of 10, pounds or less. Currently, the annual safety and emissions inspection consists of inspecting the vehicle's safety equipment, a visual anti-tampering check of the emissions system, and a gas cap integrity test.
Pursuant to R. Air pollution comes from factories, businesses, consumer products, cars, trucks and buses. Pollution from vehicles causes two of our worst air pollution problems, smog, or low-level ozone, and carbon monoxide. Ozone is a colorless gas, which is composed of three oxygen atoms linked together. When found in the upper atmosphere, it is a natural barrier to the harmful rays of the sun.
When found at ground level, it can be a hazard to the health of humans, animals and plants. Ozone is formed when volatile organic compounds VOCs and nitrogen oxides NOx react during a warm, sunny day. Industry, gasoline fumes, vehicle exhaust, chemical solvents, and natural resources generally release VOCs and NOx which are known to cause ozone at ground level. Ozone affects ones' health by damaging lung tissue and making them more susceptible to infections.
Ozone is also known to aggravate already existing health problems, such as asthma, heart disease and emphysema. It can also inhibit the growth of plants, cause damage to crops, crack the seal of rubber and adhesives, and cause dyes to fade. On days that ozone levels are high hot, summer days, with no windresidents should try to reduce the amount of time spent outdoors and should avoid most outdoor exercise.
People with asthma or other respiratory problems should be especially careful of exposure on bad days. Carbon Monoxide CO is a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. A product of incomplete burning of hydrocarbon-based fuels, carbon monoxide consists of a carbon atom and an oxygen atom linked together. Carbon Monoxide forms when there is an incomplete combustion of fuel and is emitted from the tailpipes of vehicles.
When vehicles are not tuned well, the air supply in the car is restricted during starting and incomplete combustion occurs.
Two-thirds of the existing CO emissions found in the air are caused by transportation sources. Carbon Monoxide interferes with the blood's ability to carry oxygen to the brain. CO can slow reflexes and affect thinking skills.
Pregnant women and people with heart or lung disease are particularly at risk. In high concentrations, carbon monoxide kills. On-Board Diagnostics Brochure. If your home state requires an emissions test for a vehicle that is currently located in Louisiana, the testing may be performed by any official Motor Vehicle Inspection MVI Station in the Baton Rouge ozone nonattainment area during normal inspection hours. Currently, motorists whose vehicles fail the emissions portion of the annual inspection receive a Vehicle Inspection Report VIR describing the reason for the failure, a Repair Form and a list of failure procedures.
Effective December 1,a completed Repair Form must be provided to the station prior to vehicle retest. The retest is free if the vehicle returns to the original inspection station within 30 days of issuance of the temporary sticker. In either case, the inspector will not be able to proceed with the retest for an emissions failure unless the completed Repair Form is returned.
