The Drive Clean Program was introduced a decade ago to address one of the leading causes of smog in Ontario at that time; vehicle exhaust. After 10 years, vehicle exhaust is no longer a significant source of pollution. Even the founder of the program says it has run its course. It's time to end this expensive program that has out-run its purpose.
A Petition to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario
WHEREAS the the Auditor General specifically warned the government to delay implementation of the new Drive Clean test to ensure technical testing was completed and problems were resolved;
AND WHEREAS the AG also recommended that due to modern improvements in vehicles and fuels vehicle emissions are no longer a major contributor to smog in Ontario and this program be phased out;
AND WHEREAS the fail rate for vehicles through this new system has skyrocketed due to the shortcoming of the test itself and not emissions problems with the vehicle, making Drive Clean nothing more than a tax grab for the government;
WE the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario as follows: That the government of Ontario eliminate the Drive Clean Program.
-End the useless “Drive Clean” Program once and for all!!
