Squash your lucky if all their doing is emission inspection. Ball joints,wheel bearings, lights just about everything is supposed to be checked and around here unless your buddy owns the shop it's an all out money grab.
One of the biggest scams is to pull the emergency brake. Most people with automatic transmissions never use it. When the mechanic pulls the E brake and it hasn't been used for years it locks up and has to be fixed.

Too much money involved to get rid of them. That and we can't keep a republican governor long enough to actually fix things.

Sounds like a government overreach to me. Here in Michigan alls you need is a VIN and the most expensive car insurance in the country. I have drove quite a few vehicles that checked off everything on Nessys list. Never killed anyone, just cheap transportation.

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


Ohio used to have them , you would get flagged over any place they found room to have the inspection.
Haven't see them since the 70's .
Just another way to get more money .

I left MD bout 40 years ago.
Only got an inspection once, when registered. Only again if you got a ticket for something specific ... like a light out or bad tires.
It's the owner/operators responsibility to keep the vehicle maintained and safe.

The clasic Michigan special...."The Beater with a heater" Got a $200 S10 Blazer that I run the muddy roads between the cabin and home. Parts are cheap.

yea ... same here.
Just have to basically "present" the vehicle. If you drove it in ...... it's good to go.
Never tried pushing one in, not sure if it would pass or not.
p.s.never owned a ford. smile

Glad it wasn't my sticker.....I'd be getting a visit if it was.


Surprise, Cali inspections are for emissions.

Lol....reminds me of a friend's car. Years ago we had safety inspections on 10+ year old cars getting registered. He had an old Plymouth that was set up for track use ( drag car ) I went with him to the DMV for the safety inspection. We had gone over the car one end to the other as it was being used for track use. Everything was up to par and a bunch of it was overbuilt for extreme use. It had massively oversized brakes for great stopping power.
Part of the inspection was a brake pad with steel belts attached to a gauge to test your brakes. As he rolled up to that point at about 10mph , the Inspector would tell you when to hit the brakes. He hit the brakes so hard the car stopped so hard that all the suspension crouched down and kinda nosedived in the front. When he let go of the brake pedal the car actually rolled back about a foot or two as the suspension flexed back.

The Inspector told us he had never seen that.....lol

The car passed inspection.
