Inspection and maintenance

For countries with only minimal if any controls on vehicles, a simple IM program can be a good pollution control starting point as even vehicles with no pollution controls can benefit from improved maintenance. A simple idle check on CO and HC missions from gasoline vehicles or visible smoke check on diesel vehicles can be used to identify the highest polluters and those vehicles which would most benefit from remedial maintenance.
