Crushing High Polluting Cars

March 7, 2008 10:45:55 AM PST
The people who monitor air pollution here in the Valley are ready to pay you thousands of dollars for your car just so they can destroy it. The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District is crushing high-polluting cars to help reduce emissions.

The Air District will pay either $1,000 or $5,000 for certain vehicles that continually fail smog tests.

Vehicle owners who receive $5,000 must use it toward the purchase of a newer, cleaner-burning car or pick-up.

This program is by invitation only. The Air District will contact those owners whose vehicles qualify.
