DENVER – Coloradans pay close to $51 million dollars a year in inspection fees, regulatory fees and repair costs in order to comply with the Air Care Colorado program, which is aimed at reducing the ozone emissions from vehicles.

But after diving through hundreds of pages of data, Denver7 Investigates found some people are paying more than they should be when the emissions tests sometimes don’t work correctly.

And because only older cars have to be tested, some of those faults are affecting people already on tight budgets the most.

Denver7 Investigator Ryan Luby went to the state for answers, and you’d be surprised at what they have to say. Catch the full story Monday at 10 p.m. on Denver7.
