Besides highlighting the Safety Inspection Forum, this episode focuses on the main thrust of that meeting- PMVI: Periodic Motor Vehicle Inspections. There are many challenges to eliminate or reduce the frequency of PMVI in the states that currently require them.  Bob takes you behind the scenes on why some states are considering getting out of PMVI which is the driving reason for these forums. This is an eye opening interview and worthy of your time.
