It is illegal to tamper with, remove, or cause not to work any pollution control device on your vehicle. Those who do are guilty of a first or second degree misdemeanor, depending on the offense. Tampering with emissions control devices damages your vehicle and can cause the following:

  • Increased air pollution.
  • Lower gas mileage and less vehicle efficiency.
  • More maintenance costs.
  • Respiratory (breathing) difficulties.
