Description

According to computer records, vehicle owners in Northern Virginia are much more likely to flunk state safety inspections than are other car owners in other parts of the state. Inconsistencies between regions and between stations suggest some repair shops may be failing cars to charge for unnecessary repairs, while others are rolling cars out just to collect the $10 fee.
