I couldnt remember how old the vehicle had to be, 20-25? Mine at 63 years old definitely applies.

25. I just bought my wife a old Chevy truck for this reason. Safety inspection only. No sniffer test. I'm putting a 400 HP 350 ci motor in it :-)

Expired/No inspection is hardly dirty. Especially considering tickets are dismissed if obtained prior to appearance date.
It's not the lack of those things that make a rider dirty, it's that there are many places you can buy an inspection sticker without showing proof of insurance. Riding without insurance is riding dirty.

EDIT -- just saw the other responses.

TL;DR...

That said, I don't see how this will cut down on the "riding dirty" at all. Anecdotal evidence says that when one buys a sticker "under-the-table" they just throw another car on the sniffer, or perhaps the PCM is tuned such that no missing emissions equipment flags are thrown. But, of course, having never done such an dirty, illegal thing myself, I couldn't say how it was done first-hand. Just don't see how the electronic flag vs. sticker would change those in any way, as there has always been a receipt to show it was "really done".

Don't know, always had it. Something tells me that the uninsured don't really care anyway though.

i'm in between, inspection shops can be shady.

I go to get the bike inspected, he checks the horn, blinkers and passes me.

it's a joke, he is clueless. I could have a chain falling off the bike and still pass.

on the other hand, I bring a car in, and fail because he decides my wiper blades are to old.

so all that, I quit paying safety inspection years ago.

I do my own thank you very much.

There has got to be a relatively inexpensive way to integrate DMV registration and insurance databases. Much like cops with these fancy cameras that scan plates and run them against the state insurance database (i.e. not just showing a black and white printed card to the clerk).

Its probably pretty common for a person registering a vehicle to buy and produce "proof" of liability and then cancel the insurance policy within the first month to get passed the loophole, but a red flag should be raised....I don't know how it would be enforced, aside from an annual check by the clerk...but there has to be a way. Even if it's just a letter stating that the state knows the policy has been cancelled.

They pulled the wiper blade bullshit when the woman took her car in and I had just replaced them maybe 6 months ago. Thats why I don't let her take care of like that. She thought she was helping getting it taken care of though. about 20 extra some some weak cheap wiper blades and tossed the ones I bought.

Yea, last time about 4 years ago it was the blades.

**** you guys wanted $20 for each wiper

went to vatozone and got two refils for $5.

They didn't fit properly, but looked new so they passed me.

Had the turned on the wipers, the refils would have been ejected and thrown across the shop.

Idiots.
