Constable Ron Hickman has established the Harris County Clean Air Task Force for the purpose of enforcing state laws, codes, rules and regulations pertaining to improper vehicle emissions and the sale or distribution of counterfeit vehicle inspection certificates. This Task force will help crack down on fraudulent, fictitious or improperly issued automotive state inspection certifications. Vehicles that circumvent the emission laws contribute to health threatening pollution and many of the vehicles are accidents waiting to happen due to faulty brakes, bald tires or some other safety hazards. The State vehicle inspection program is designed to help keep vehicles safe to operate as well as to help reduce air pollution. Our program, which is supplanted by grant funding, consists of a two part effort. Task Force investigators will work behind the scenes to reduce the number of fraudulent, fictitious or improperly issued automotive state emission inspection certificates. Many of our patrol officers will also be conducting on-road emission enforcement targeting excessively smoking vehicles along with those displaying expired or invalid inspection certificates. For more information regarding Emissions and State Regulation please visit the Texas Commission on Enviromental Quality Website.
