A bill to end Utah's vehicle safety inspections was approved by the Utah Senate, leading the way to finally end the mandatory requirement, according to an article by the Salt Lake Tribune. The bill also requires an additional $1.00 registration fee to fund more highway patrol efforts in lieu of the inspections.
On November 27, 2016, Kyle Savely was driving westbound on Interstate 80 when a Utah Highway Patrol officer pulled him over. The officer said that Savely was following too close to another vehicle. When Savely refused to give permission for his car to search his car, a drug dog was called to the scene. Despite the fact that no contraband or drugs were located in the car, but the dog alerted on a bag of 52 stacks of money totaling $500,000.
