Don’t Be A Slacker, Inspect Early

Cars Lined Up

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

I realized on Friday that I had forgotten to get my state inspection done for my car, and knowing that Friday was going to be a disaster, I scheduled it for yesterday, only to have my day be interrupted by client needs. This morning when I took my car to the Shell at the foot of the hill, at 9am, I left it in a line of at least 15 cars. Today’s the last day of July, and that means the last chance to be street-legal if your inspection sticker runs out today.

You’d think an online-happy state like Virginia would maintain an online listing of places to have your car inspected, but they claim it’s impossible, with 4200 locations that fluctuate between having an inspector and not having an inspector. However, most service stations and car repair facilities tend to have spots to inspect your vehicle. If you’re expiring in August, head down on Friday or something, just get it out of the way.
