You won\'t believe why I almost failed inspection!!

I had to scrape off my "it's a jeep thing..." sticker from my windowshield. The VA inspection law states that
you cannot have any writing that can become a distraction to oncoming drivers.

I scraped it off...what can you do? Oh yeah...i already ordered another one though!

At least I didn't fail for emissions or something!

Yeah, like a CJ with a 4" lift and 33's ISNT a distraction, but a sticker is! Well, our tax money has to go somewhere, you didn't thing you would get through an inspection without them finding SOMETHING wrong...did you?

"You cannot have any writing that can become a distraction to oncoming drivers."

Wow, that law is so subjective you could drive H8Monday's thorugh it and have room to spare, top, bottom and on all sides. After all the word "Honda" makes me laugh... and who knows what would happen if I saw two in a rwo coming down the road...

What do they call that flimsy little piece of tin (tag) they make you put on the front of your Jeep[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Sounds like a good excuse to get rid of that eye sore too.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Sounds like somebody hasn't had any in awhile.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
The state patrol here is worse than that on salvage inspections. You are GUILY UNTILL PROVEN INNOCENT. Thats how they act........like you stole it. If you don't have a reciept for something that you put on the car, they consider it stolen, pull it off and bring it to me to crush. (sorry about the door or frontend that you just put on and didn't get a reciept for) Now thats a *****!!!!
