Tips for investigative reporters
As far as investigative reporting goes, here’s an idea for your local reporter: The details of your Smog Test, (whether you pass or not), are sent electronically to Sacramento. After that, your test results, along with your VIN information, and mileage, is showing up on reports from “Car Fax“!
If you use Car Fax this is not news to you. Obviously, the State has chosen to “sell” or share your personal information. How did this happen and who else, besides “Car Fax”, is getting that information? Ahhh the questions that need real investigation.
