Pennsylvania Bill Incorporates Recall Checks into Safety Inspections

Sept. 15, 2016

Sept. 15, 2016—The Automotive Service Association (ASA) reported Wednesday that Pennsylvania House Bill (HB) 2297, introduced by state Rep. Madeleine Dean (D-153) would require state vehicle safety inspections to include a review of any potential safety recalls.

The recall check would use the vehicle’s VIN. Owners would then be notified if the vehicle is subject to a recall. 

The bill has been referred to the Committee on Transportation for further review. If enacted, the bill would take effect in 60 days. 

“At the Vehicle Safety Inspection Forum hosted by ASA and ASA-PA, in Philadelphia, shop owners discussed the value of including recall notices as part of the vehicle safety inspection. ASA supports state inspection programs including these notices to consumers,” Robert L. Redding Jr., ASA Washington, D.C., said.
