Prius Owners P.O.ed in Georgia

My wife's Maid of Honor is a Georgia Prius owner. You wouldn't think that she'd have problems with Georgia's emissions standards. But 100% of hybrids are failing the test.

When they hook the cialis kanada Prius, or any hybrid, up to the emissions tester and levitra without prescription online idle the car, the testing machine awaits emissions to test and...nothing happens.

There are no emissions, because the hybrids don't idle, they turn themselves off. So the machine prints out an 'aborted test' certificate, Jesslyn has to pay the $25 and then go downtown to her failed test waived so she can be allowed to buy a license plate.

Talk about ridiculous and backward, I hope to see an army of Toyota lobbyists in Georgia tomorrow morning. Intelligent environmental legislation doesn't worked if it's wrapped in this much red tape. Welcome to an EcoGeek's nightmare.

I love me some bureaucracy. I'm actually a smidge impressed that they're able to get the aborted test results waived at all, actually.

Crowning irony

Good grief! In essence, the state of Georgia is punishing people for driving more fuel-efficient vehicles, because they have to go through twice the bureaucratic hassle that everyone else does. This is not exactly great PR for Georgia. Meanwhile, the state of California rewards Prius and other fuel-efficient owners by issuing stickers allowing them to drive in the carpool lanes with just one person in the car ... but even here, bureaucracy rears its ugly head; the state has run out of the stickers!

I guess this is the price you pay for being on the leading edge!
