NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION

Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsection 53-8-204(5) states that the division shall make rules setting minimum standards covering the design, construction, condition, and operation of motor vehicle equipment for safely operating a motor vehicle on the highway; establishing safety inspection station building, equipment, and personnel requirements necessary to qualify to perform safety inspections; and establishing age, training, examination, and renewal requirements to qualify for a safety inspector certificate.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

Many of the comments received at the Utah Highway Patrol Safety Inspection Office are negative when a vehicle fails an inspection or if a person disagrees with an inspection standard. Most of these comments come by phone.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

Subsection 53-8-204(5) states that the division shall make rules setting minimum standards covering the design, construction, condition, and operation of motor vehicle equipment for safely operating a motor vehicle on the highway; establishing safety inspection station building, equipment, and personnel requirements necessary to qualify to perform safety inspections; and establishing age, training, examination, and renewal requirements to qualify for a safety inspector certificate. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
