I wish to make the BAR accountable for putting a shoddy analytical scoring system in place that is punishing good technicians who have done nothing wrong.I, and others in this field of smogging cars,are being graded by a faulty system that was put in place by BAR.and giving us techs no choice in the matter.They claim they had meetings,but they have them in Sacramento during the day when most techs are working.They do this on purpose and by the time they have one near us,it has already been decided.They score us on a scale of .01 to.1.I have been smogging cars for over 20 years and at one time had a .96 with the lowest never being lower than a .68.Out of the blue my score dropped to a .38 for no apparent reason.I called and talked to Alan at BAR.I said I want to  appeal this.He tells me you cant.He then tells me that cars I smogged passed more than cars tested elsewhere of the same make and model.I have never illegally passed any car..If you fall below a .4 then you lose your Star Status.I waited 6 months to see if my score went back up,only to find that it had dropped to a .26.This system they use is flawed,but they refuse to admit it..I and many other techs want it to change.It affects our lively hood and our jobs.We are being punished for doing nothing wrong.The system needs to change,and we need rights to defend ourselves against these false accusations..If my shop changes owners or ARD s then I would be out of a job.Please join me in making BAR accountable for their actions.Someone has to.Please put your name and Smog License # on the petition.If we get 100 signatures,the assembly will open a case.Thank you. Lets win this!!!
