Got a ticket for an expired inspection sticker. Question...


I have heard this is an exspensive ticket. I have also heard that if you get your inspection sticker up to date and present it to the clerk of court before the trial date, you can get away with a smaller fine. Is this true? Or does anyone know of a way to handle this ticket without paying an outrageous fine.

Thanks...

happened to me in Tx, so not sure about how it is in La

FWIW, I had to go to court and pay a court fee, it was $25 or so, and the charge was dismissed because I proved I got it inspected a day after the ticket.

I hear that. I am just not a fan of people who bitch for getting speeding tickets and such when they KNOW they were speeding/breaking the law.

Sure, we all get them, but I know how fast I was going when I got stopped. No one to blame but me.

I am glad I don't have to do this anymore. I always kept forgetting with mine. I still have my LA inspection sticker on my car...expired in 2006

as far as getting it waved, yes. Mine was six months overdue and was told I would have to pay the fine no matter what the circumstances.

The judicial system goes along with the scam of inspection stickers. $$$ for everyone!

This may sound like a stupid question, but, does your inspection sticker expire at the end of the month or the beginning? Someone tried telling my wife that if it says 06/09 it expires on the first of June and not the 30th.

Yes, for example, if my inspection sticker expires at the end of this month (June) you have a 30 day grace period to get a new one.

2 months - had a dam check engine light on and just did not take the time to get the code cleared...asked for a warning ticket but was told my warning was the month and year of expiration on my sticker (pissed me off, but I have used that line on others that told me about their tickets).....rookie state trooper.

Usually with stuff like this if you get it inspected the day of the ticket the prosecutor will drop the charge.
