EPA Prohibiting Converting Vehicles Into Racecars - Week 4

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is trying to pass a law that prohibits the conversion of street cars into race cars, to the act of modifying a vehicle. The reason for the EPAs decision would be to  "prohibit conversion of vehicles originally designed for on-road use into race cars" and "make the sale of certain products for use on such vehicles illegal" SEMA Specialty Equipment Market Association announced. This is all to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

This has caused a lot of ruckus in the tuning and racing community, because the modifying of cars brings a lot of joy to people and some people do it for a living, so be taking it away, you are putting people out of the workforce. Many people are furious with this news and are trying to do something about it. There is a petition on the White House website where you put your name, email, and zip code to try to stop law from passing. If you are a car fanatic and would love to be a part of stopping this law, go on the website below and sign your name. Over 120 thousand people have already signed, which is pasted the amount of signatures needed, but the more the merrier!


  1. Wow, I would have never known. I know how important this is to you and your boyfriend so I'll gladly sign this for you guys!

  2. Sounds interesting, I didn't know this law was an actual thing. I think if you bought a car you should be able to do whatever you want with it.
