Kelly Says No More Vehicle Inspections

October 18, 1996

State Capital Bureau

Republican gubenatorial candidate Margaret Kelly is calling for a repeal of Missouri's vehicle inspection law.

But as David Freitas reports, some Missourians aren't happy about it.

Story:
RunTime:
OutCue: SOC

If Margaret Kelly has her way, Missourians will no longer have to get their cars inspected every year.

The Republican candidate says the inspection is unnecessary since manufacturers are designing cars more safely.

But one mid-Missouri mechanic disagrees with Kelly's stance.

Teresa Gleeson says Missouri drivers would not be as safe.

Actuality:
RunTime: 13
OutCue: "... more likely to happen."
Contents: Gleeson says they catch problems with tires, for example, and if unnoticed those kind of problems could be serious.

The division of public safety shares Gleeson's concern.

Officials there report that the chances of a fatal accident are less likely in Missouri because of vehicle inspections.
