Bill the two counties in Arizona doing an Emission testing program are Maricopa,which is the metro Phoenix areas, and Pima, which is the Tucson area. It is based on the population, and region. By using guidelines from the Federal Government.
Many people who own land outside of the county, or knows a relative/ friend outside of the county. Have in the past used those addresses to circumvent the law, when there is an issue with passing an Emission test. The State issues a registration tag that is different in color, for that reason, Owners who drive into the Containment area with one of those vehicles can be ticketed for that offense.
So, to clarify...
Rancher Brown lives in East West Overshoe in Gnat-bite County and drives his '77 Chevy pickup (his only vehicle) to Phoenix for the day to do some shopping and remind himself of what other people look like. The truck is registered at his ranch, where it should be.
That simple act of providing your own transportation would result in getting ticketed for driving a legally-registered, insured (if Arizona requires it?), inspected and approved vehicle will create a fine for you??
Sounds ever so slightly un-American, not to mention a gross restriction of all kinds of freedoms, etc. And plain stupid.
With that kind of behavior, I was considering Arizona for "someday," or perhaps to buy some property to escape the winter here.
Not with the government behaving like that.
