Hopefully we don't get called out for the Jetta. It smokes just a tad LOL.

BTW, this article mentions why it's been a difficult thing to enforce.

Seems like the new law is just as ambiguous to me?

They have to see it for 5 seconds before they can ticket and if this passes then they can just ticket for any smoke at all. That seems to open the doors for more problems. My truck is bone stock but at WOT on a hot day it'll smoke a little. Especially if I'm pulling a trailer. Now a ticket is solely at the discretion of an officer if he wants to ticket me or not.

I'm not advocating for coal rolling idiots by any means but boy it just opens it up for the rest of us to get hit with fines for using a completely stock truck for its intended purpose when the wrong cop sees you. Am I mistaken?

I don't think you're mistaken Kimmel. The one argument I can see in favor might be that it marginalizes the EPA and Federal rules.

Just register your vehicle as a commercial vehicle and roll coal all you want
