There have always been opponents of the Drive Clean program here in Ontario, but recent changes have made the process that much more frustrating for drivers.
Not only that, a program that was supposed to be 'revenue neutral', essentially breaking even, but is now raking in the money for the province.
CTV's Paul Bliss was speaking with Newstalk1010's Jerry Agar, and says a change to the way cars and trucks are tested, was rolled out in January and had led to more and more newer cars getting a failing grade.
He says if your car has died, or has needed a new battery, and it hasn't been driven enough since, it will register a 'not ready'.
That's because the new method of testing goes through the on-board computer, rather than sticking a probe into the exhaust pipe and measuring what comes out.
When it comes to the revenue, Bliss says the provincial government is now making millions off the tests.
As a matter of fact, one report we found, shows the province could be raking in as much as 18 million dollars annually, with it possible that number could grow to 50 million dollars a year in the near future.
And, Bliss says, the program is not really needed any more, with the Auditor General pointing out that closing the coal plants and people buying new cars has resulted in cleaner air.
A similar program in BC is being phased out in 2014.
