quick question for WI peeps
#1189306 - 03/12/06 01:25 AM

thinking of trying to get a job out in WI - specifically Oshkosh/Appleton area (girlfriend - prob future wife is form madison) and wanted to know local laws on smog etc.

Does WI have emissions? Yearly checks etc
How are cops out there?

I guess basically any info would be great

cops - have nothing better to do but to pull people over
emissions - per county - dodge county does not have them
yearly emissions - per county

oshkosh and appleton both have smog testing......

pretty awful answer on the cop situation. Cops, vary county to county as they do every other state. I guess the last poster has bad accounts with them or something. I've been driving 5 years, 2 with my SVT and i've yet to recieve a ticket. I live in racine county too...which has like 70k people in it. so i mean...it varies place to place. its like, dont drive recklessly and fast where you know a cop will be. roads that have farms or like...are away from town, there ya go, open her up. common sense will save you from having to worry about [censored].

move to Madison... Emissons testing is non-existant and the job market is decent..

Cops can be a55holes wherever you live..

The Cougar is about as obnoxious and loud as you can get in looks and they normally leave me alone as long as I'm not driving like an idiot or asking for trouble.. But then again they probably run my plate immediately and see that it belongs to a 35 year old woman.. LOL

When it was in primer I used to get pulled over though, I think they just assumed that some young kid owned it and my registration had to be incorrect.

Long Answer Short = Madison has ZERO emissions/fog testing and is a great place to live.

Thats a nice feature in WI. A lot of towns dont have emissions. Thats why I have my Trans Am registered up north and not in Racine. Threw collecter plates on and I'm good to go...
