What You'll Get
The invention of the horseless carriage revolutionized transportation and forced horses to settle for jobs as professional carousel riders. Keep cars running and horses standing with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a North Carolina State Safety and Emissions Inspection at City Automotive in Greensboro (a $30 value). This Groupon is only valid for cars manufactured after 1995.
City Automotive's ASE-certified technicians walk cars through a painless state-sanctified procedural to validate safe operations and regulatory emissions. During the 30-minute inspection, mechanics adjust headlights and turn signals, scrutinize brakes for proper stopping power, and squirt water at windshields to check the reflexes of wipers. Techs then gauge tires to approve the supportive condition of pavement pounders, verify proper handling on the steering mechanism, and reflect upon the importance of visibility in the rear view mirrors. Car horns brag of their bravado when pushed, proving their mettle against green-light dozers, and any cars equipped with post-factory tinted windows will be assessed based on a visibility light requirement. The mechanics then move on to the emissions inspection, where they test exhaust emission controls and eavesdrop on the muffler before introducing the car to a computer diagnostics system, which relates back to the mechanics the state of readiness monitors and the car's paralyzing fear of bicycles.
