This complaint has led to a request that the
Legislature allow only certified mechanics to inspect
If the inspection program is ended, two
alternatives exist. Nebraska could adopt a
state-owned-station inspection program or it could
have no inspections.
A state-owned station program would initially cost
the taxpayer S3 million to S5 million and would be
difficult to set up because of the wide area that
would have to be served, according to Sullivan.
Currently only S 120,371 is appropriated for the
inspection program, Sullivan said.
The other alternative, complete abandonment, is
considered even less attractive.
According to the National Safety Council, those
10 states with no inspection programs average 6.9
deaths for every 100 million miles traveled. States
with inspection programs similar to Nebraska's
average 4.0 deaths and those with state-owned-station
programs only 3.8 deaths.
Nebraska has demonstrated that periodic checks of
vehicles can reduce fatal accidents caused by
defective brakes, tires, steering or lights. In 1968, one
year before the program was set up, 17 fatal accidents
were caused by one or more defects. In 1970, the
number was cut to 13; in 1971, six; and in 1972,
But Sullivan and Eppens said that the one aspect
of the program that has not been controlled is the
And they agreed that until the smiling attendants,
"sticker slappers" and certified mechanics inspect all
motor vehicles with some uniformity, any program
would be less than perfect.
A united minorities group, organized last
spring to support the takeover of Wounded
Knee, S.D., is planning a demonstration march
to the Capitol on Columbus Day, Oct. 12.
The United Minorities and Concerned
People's Organization (UMCI'O) will plan the
protest at a meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in
the Nebraska Union, according to a spokesman
for the group.
UMPCO is made up of Mexican-Americans,
blacks, Indians and a few whites, but

The protest will focus on the "oppression"
resulting when the white people came to
