As technology advances, the internal combustion engine will become more efficient and pollute less. Over time, exhaust system components have been added to lower noise, while emission system components have been added to convert harmful gases into more environmentally friendly by-products. I/M testing helps to keep in-use vehicle emission levels regulated, minimizing pollution released into the environment. Consumers can reduce pollution by upgrading to a more efficient vehicle and by driving less.
