another tax miss represented as there to provide greater safety

the states with don't turn in significantly fewer accidents or fatalities.

Its ridiculous. Especially in rhe north with all the salt that gets used and rusting out everything.

Luckily Ohio doesn't do this. There is inspections to be able to get a salvage title vehicle back on the road.

Nebraska used to do it but thankfully did away with it. They need to worry more about the individual driver than if the muffler is rusty.

Agree that makes more sense on the big trucks Illinois inspections were leave a $20 on the seat and pass no problem.

WV has Inspection stickers. It was originally SUPPOSED to be a Temporary thing to help with Road Work but as usual it is now permanent and usually raises every year. Just a Gimmick.


God please keep they 19 fallen UBB miners out of trouble up there.

According to the GAO, there is no statistical difference in crashes or fatalities between states that mandate inspection and those that don't.

A fellow who operates an auto repair shop locally posted a YouTube video of a pickup truck losing its front tire causing a severe accident. He suggested this is why vehicle inspections were necessary. It wouldn't be the first time a mechanic failed to tighten lugnuts. I pointed that out to him in the comments section.

I was looking at an older Jeep in excellent shape with very low mileage. The seller mentioned it needed
a clutch bearing. Armed with the research I'd done, I called the same mechanic to get a quote. He quoted a price three times as high as the part I had already sourced. We're talking multiple hundreds of dollars for the same part. I understand people are in business to make money but...

The state issues these inspection licenses to these mechanics and we're at their mercy. Unless your vehicle fairly recently rolled off the assembly line, these guys always manage to find something that fails inspection.

There's got to be a better way.

Ours are color coded and displayed on the windshield. Police know at a glance whether your vehicle inspection is current or not.

Ours or. Color coded to. You can buy a sticker for one year for 10 or two years for 20. And if you have a trailer with two plus axles. You have to get one for them too! It’s just a tax!

lol, It's ok, lots of people don't understand how hard the state would come down on us if we falsely rejected a vehicle or passed one that kills someone.

Its been a few years since I've been up your way but for a spell I was coming up every year. I hunted and trapped in the northwoods.

and as you pointed out no statistical difference between states that inspect and states that don't so then it is just a tax and a way to make you spend more.

jacked up truck looks to be a chevy looses drivers front wheel it goes under a little Rav 4 looking Black suv and it flips end wise ?
look at the second to the last bounce of that tire , the rotor still looks to be attached , that or a wheel spacer

lifted truck , wheels outside the fenders , there are a lot of arguments that could be there

vehicle inspections are not the first one I would go with

if you have a shop in your area looking for more work right now , there is a reason , they are cooks or bad at what they do!

every shop around here is busy , all the time.

people who are bad at their jobs look for the government to create them easy money on inspections

for a commercial truck where the company will maximize profits till the driver is dead and several people around them

but in a POV where it is your tail in that crash , if your vehicle is unsafe to drive , that probably isn't your riskiest behavior.

we don't know the circumstances of that crash , or who put the wheel on, when , what hardware was in play if it was a wheel spacer or a sealed hub bearing unit that failed
