What are you talking about? Disabling emissions equipment on street vehicles has always been against the law. The majority who do nothing wrong are not getting punished. The EPA was never concerned with people taking a street car, stripping off the pollution equipment, and then running it in competition. However, people kept that pollution control equipment deleted, then ran it on the street.
This discussion about the EPA doing this has been going on since around 2016. Why is it just blowing up today?
The “roll coal” and “delete” crowd were the ones who probably caused complaints to congressmen, representatives, governors, etc causing those regulations to be put in place years ago.
The people who never touched anything now have to spend more on trucks now and live with the lower reliability.
Its blowing up today because now the government is pushing new and more regulations on us.
