Connecticut bill sets inspections for high-mileage cars
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut lawmakers are considering a bill that would require inspections of high-mileage vehicles.
State Rep. Tom Vicino, a Democrat from Clinton, has proposed a bill that would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to periodically inspect any registered vehicle with an odometer mileage reading of more than 100,000.
Vicino, a first-term lawmaker, is the owner-operator of Superior Auto in Westbrook and a former member of the Connecticut Auto Body Board of Directors.
The General Assembly's Transportation Committee is scheduled to hear testimony on the bill Wednesday.
Committee members are also scheduled to hear testimony that same day on a bill proposed by Greenwich Rep. Livvy Floren, a Republican. It would require anyone 65 years old or older to undergo an eye examination before DMV can renew their driver's license.
