Dilapidated vehicles are blamed for over 40% of Tehran’s worsening air pollution, which problem has not been resolved yet, the head of Tehran Vehicle Technical Inspection Bureau said.
Hossein Moqaddam added that the current rules for mandatory technical inspections and repairs are no longer effective, as smog-inducing cars plying the capital’s roads are increasing and worsening air pollution, ISNA reported. 
As per the rule to minimize the destructive effect of polluting vehicles on air quality, all two- and four-wheelers in the metropolis are required to go through mandatory inspections annually and receive technical conformity papers that show the vehicle meets all automotive and emission standards. 
Brand new vehicles are exempted from tests by up to four years.
