    What's the rules for driving through New Jersey as far as emissions? Is it like California where you can't have any pre emissions truck or are the only checking for people deleting their trucks?

    Not supposed to idle, if I’m not mistaken. Don’t think they’re checking emissions. The DOT in NJ surprisingly aren’t as bad as most.

    NJ could care less. With all those container haulers flying around in trucks held together with bungee cords they stay busy enough

    As a man that has had roadside emissions tests done in NJ- I will say they aren’t common but do happen.

    There is a roving emissions testing unit looking for any smoky truck so they can whip out the opacity tester.

    They will test out of state trucks too.

    NJ trucks need to pass an emissions opacity test within 90 days of renewing the registration.

    Fines are $700 to $1500 plus paying the impound and tow too.
     
    tscottme and Concorde Thank this.

    I’ve only had one and that was 20 years ago.

    Is that still a thing anymore with modern trucks having all the DPF crap?

    When it first passed they were popping mack dump trucks by the dozen.

    We were caught by a small town who impounded when they found the smoke test overdue
