Anyone else think the new inspection sticker location on the driverside is awful?  With a CJ windshield it blocks alot of your view, since our windshields are near vertical and  so damn small... This is ridiculous.

I don't know why they couldn't put it in the passenger side in the same location -- I guess they want you to be able to see it from the driver's seat so you remember?

New code started this year. St police wanted it for years and sensors in the newer cars are usually at center of the dash.

Cops like to sit at intersections on the median, easier to see on the driverside,  Is my guess. My CJ's inspection had been dead for 4 years lol. I don't have time for that crap. But now that it's no longer  being placed in the middle its going to be real obvious. I'm going to ask if they'll put it in the middle or move it myself. It will block so much of my view... New vehicles windshields are so big and sloped it doesn't block anything on them down low.

Nothing to do with cops. A lot of the newer sensors for vehicles with crash avoidance are in the middle and the old sticker location interferes with that. I heard that there was a crash where the parties involved sued the state claiming that the inspection sticker was a contributing factor (donít have a source though), and this new location is a knee jerk reaction based on that suit (completely believable given the bureaucratic mentality).

Here,s one.... if you own a ford,of any type ,and it has the assembly plant sticker on the rt,lower part of the windshield..thats ok and cannot be removed during inspection. All other stickers,fast passes ect,but not DoD passes are to be removed  and placed in the area of the rear view mirror but not below the A1 line......BS in my book....

It belongs on the left side down low, I despise the VA in the middle of the view location. It's very irritating.

I think it should go up top off on the passenger side, anywhere along the bottom blocks your view. Especially since you look through the edge of the windshield to see the passenger mirror   Propellar Head

If I had a CJ I would get vintage tags for it. No inspection, $50.00 for permanent license.  Some downside as to usage such as 240 mile range, and cannot be a DD, but it is the way to go.  I am not sure if other states would even care if you were over your miles, but the VA penalty is that you lose the Antique tag and have to go to a regular tag, which is where you are now, so I see no problems.

As for the Inspection Sticker,  I grew up in PA also, and lived in WV for a time, and they were both there.  I think most that require a sticker are there.

Not if you DD your old stuff like I do. Same with my son. I considered it recently for his 67 impala, but decided against taking the risk.

Not to start a "Food Fight" - my understanding is that the 250 miles from your home address limit only applies to pleasure drives. There is no distance limit on club events and car shows... Let's keep those club events and car shows coming. Boink
