I do not agree with that legislation. I started observing my father work on our own cars and people he knew. That is how I got interested in doing this job. I helped him work on those cars also. I am 33 years old so it wasn't that long ago, now I have my own shop and my father works for me. The idea that I did not actually purchase the car when I bought it is ludicrous. I hate government or corporate over controlling and taking away simple freedoms like this. I spent a few hours last night even, diagnosing a radio communications problem on my truck at home, if this law was in effect then if a cop was to drive by and see it, I would have been fined or even gone to jail. That's nuts. I understand there are a lot of idiots working on cars now days, but give me a break. People need to have more common sense. More regulation and more restriction are not the answer, in my opinion.
