Governor Larry Hogan has continued his plans to make government services more convenient and put money in Maryland residents' pockets by expanding self-service Vehicle Emission Inspection Program (VEIP) kiosks. Seven new kiosks will be added bringing the state's total to nine.
The kiosks were first launched in August 2015 and have performed more than 2300 VEIP tests with a customer satisfaction rating of 85-90%. In addition to the new kiosks, the price will also be reduced from $14 to $10.
The expansion of this initiative was announced by the the Maryland Department of Transportation's Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) and the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE):
"The Hogan Administration is committed to cleaner air and better service for customers. Self-serve kiosks and other driver-friendly emissions improvements are the wave of the future and that's great news for air quality and public health in Maryland," said Maryland Department of the Environment Secretary Ben Grumbles.
