Scammers make big bucks on safety checks
There is a major problem in Hawaii concerning safety checks on motor vehicles.
I cannot mention names, but have witnessed on many occasions motor vehicles getting through safety inspections that shouldn't.
Everyone seems to know a mechanic who will pass their vehicle if a speedometer cable doesn't work, if the muffler is loud or even if the high beams don't work. I know someone whose mechanic delivers to their home the safety inspection sticker without ever checking the car.
Mechanics are endangering our lives by trying to give friends a break. Who knows how many accidents could be prevented if there were stricter laws on issuing safety inspection stickers?
The whole safety inspection deal is just another scam for the almighty buck
