Littleton auto owners have probably noticed that the government mandates a lot of equipment on cars: emission devices and control computers; safety equipment like airbags; and crash worthiness requirements. All of this is great for the motoring public in Denver but it does add quite a bit to the price of a new car in Colorado. Because new cars are more expensive, Littleton residents are driving their old cars longer.
