The Enhanced Emissions & Safety Test program is nearing the end of the phase-in period for the OBD II Check. As this edition of Inspection Update went to press, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) was reviewing public comments received on new regulations that will provide the authority for full implementation of OBD II emissions testing for all 1996-and-newer vehicles.

Although each lamp has only a few milligrams of mercury, over two million of them are sold in Maine every year.
