required vehicular emissions testing in Bexar County

It has come to my attention that Bexar county does not require vehicular emissions testing. I also see that diesel vehicles are exempt from testing even in those relatively few counties in Texas that require emissions testing. How might we encourage cleaner vehicles? Lung issues and asthma are a major health issue in San Antonio, in part because of the cedar and oak pollens, but also because the particulate matter and toxic exhaust from our vehicles. How might the city incentivize and encourage cleaner transportation and perhaps increase public transportation. Thank you.
