    Don't ask me why (maybe I was thinking back to the "d_ck" stuff we would THINK of doing in high school) not specifically me (i.e. racing, calling guys out on the freeway that cut us off, keying someone's car, egging cars).. again...not me...

    Crossed quickly through my mind that someone could basically erase someone's safety, and they would just have a couple of white stickers on their bumper...

    Not that I would do that to someone, but teens in the area could technically do it to me.. Someones idea of the behind the glass thing makes sense.. like I believe Virginia..

    also inspectors are told to not reissue replacement stickers. so if you have a damaged sticker your going end up paying for a new inspection

    yeah, I already erased some of the vin numbers off a newer sticker. All they really need to match it up is the last 4, plus has ur plate number and the station number. Doesnt take much to cross reference it.

    imagine the guys whos gonna erase it and refill it in, next year.

    Sitting in an hour+ wait for an inspection... 45 mins down and maybe 30 to go. Shouldn't be a problem getting passed with my recon, needing to scrape back window stickers may be a different story. Will report after this ordeal is done.

    So I passed even though I possibly shouldn't have. Passed, but found out that I need to change my LCA ball joints. Definitely wouldn't have passed if I went down to jiffy lube or goodyear.

    Now to look into new LCAs (aftermarket or OEM ) or new ball joints and labor...

    That's hilarious! I was in Hawaii in Dec 2013 and I've never seen so many motorcyclists without helmets and people riding in the box of pickup trucks in my life. Maybe they should start with those issues before worrying about window tint or lifts.

    i used to have my safety behind the glass (upper middle back windshield on a bracket by my 3rd brake light) back in like 2002 haha. but that was because i took off a body kit piece on my rear bumper and had to relocate the bracket, and never did. it was upside down and everything but i never got a single hassle about it. surely that wouldn't fly today and actually i was surprised i never got fkd with about it then... but i guess the problem with behind the glass would be people's tint...

    never knew about erasing numbers off the new safetys either, i just watched that news clip ink :facepalm:

    Is there a website where the new rules and regulations are?
    I went to a place in Waipahu (mom and pop) didn't pass because I had a sticker on the bottom left of my back window (when you are in the cab you cant even see the sticker) and I had LEDs in my reverse and license plate lights. Took it to another place and passed without any questions.

    The rules haven't changed just the method of how they do the safety inspections. Supposedly its always been a law that you cant have stickers on the rear window no matter where it is which I find stupid cause ive seen people with fully loaded vans and guys with camper shells passing like that doesn't block your vision smh. Just either gotta peel em of find a shop that doesn't notice it but good thing is you got it.

    stickers are ok for trucks/suvs

    it's the places doing the inspection that don't know...so because they don't know, they improvise instead of getting up to speed.
