BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Kern County has some of the worst air quality in the nation, and cars continue to be one of the top pollutants, but the Kern County Fair grounds might be able to help with a free emissions test.
Hundreds of cars will come out to receive the free tune up, the only criteria? Your have to have owned your car for the last six months.
But hey, even if your car doesn't make the cut, there's still hope - drivers will also receive a $500 voucher to fix their vehicles at any local star-certified smog station.
The free emissions testing beings at 9:00 a.m. and runs until 3:00 p.m. There will also be a car clinic and health safety fair being put on by local non-profits.
Organizers advice the public to get there as early as possible because only about 500 cars will be eligible for the tune ups today.
