If they had to pass inspection regularly, it wouldn't be so onerous. I'm betting that in Michigan, at least 1/10 of the cars on the road would need repairs costing more than the value of the car to get them to pass an inspection.
If they haven't been maintained since they were sold either second hand or new, then they probably shouldn't be on the road anymore. And isn't or shouldn't that be the purpose of an annual inspection? To get the cars that are unsafe off of the road?
