[Reader Submitted] I wanted to let your readers know about an issue of some importance. Recently, I was stopped by a police officer for an expired inspection sticker. My first thought: no big deal; $130 Ticket, no points, and on my way, right? Wrong. If your inspection is at least 60 days past due, the officer has the option of giving you a ticket called “Refusal to Inspect” pursuant to statute 39:8-9. This is a big ticket, $500-$600, and requires a court appearance.
Hopefully others can learn from my mistake.
