Difference in inspection sticker
The trailer's inspection sticker is merely stapled to your registration papers, rather than stuck to some part of your trailer. The paper protecting the sticky side is not removed, and is transparent enough for the sticker to be read through the paper.
The issuing inspection station is supposed to place a rubber-stamped 'X' on the sticker to call attention to it being a trailer inspection, and to prevent an unscrupulous person from later mounting it on the windshield of an automobile (that probably wouldn't pass inspection).
It's been the law for trailers as long as there has been a law for us to inspect our cars and trucks. Anybody whining about it is merely ignorant to the law.
There goes my theory of being able to display it. Seems like since it is not a wildlife violation, they would need some sort of reasonable suspicion before they shake you down for documents.
can derstand that this is a law that just hadn't really been enforced and now they are starting to enforce it. But how does wildlife and fisheries write a ticket for not having an inspection sticker that is needed to trailer your boat on the highway? It just seems like it's not their jurisdiction and this is just a new way that they've found to make revenue.
But how does wildlife and fisheries ...

Let me get this straight
In addition to the trailer being registered .......we have to have the trailer inspected?
Where does one go to even get a trailer inspected??
Wildlife agents are pretty much supercops. They hold statewide commissions like other cops, but they can do just about anything without a search warrant if they suspect a game violation. They are frequently used by local LE to help with drug surveillance and the like. They also have one of the most dangerous LE jobs out there. I have much respect for the good ones. I still call em rabbit sheriff, possum cop, ect when I can.

Complete BS. I have respect for all LEO and almost always comply with their requests without question but they have to follow the constitution the same as all other LEO's. I have a childhood friend that is a GW and he's told me that most folks believe exactly as you do, and therefore don't question their requests for searches...
