Purchasing a parking permit at Utah State University may first require an emissions inspection for some in-state and out-of-state vehicles. According to James Nye, Director of USU Parking and Transportation, USU will follow the Utah Code 41-6a-1642 Emissions Inspection - County Program.
Owners of vehicles less than six years old from counties and states that do not already require emissions testing will have to show proof of an inspection. Nye said a plan is in place to minimize the impact of complying with the new rule so students and employees will not have to face delays in getting their parking permits.
The USU Motor Pool will offer emissions inspections for $15 (the standard county rate) which should be paid at the USU Parking and Transportation office. An emissions inspection may also be done off campus. Nye expects the new requirement to affect less than two percent of those purchasing parking permits.
He said if you are not sure if you will need an emissions inspection the best thing to do is call or stop by his office.
