You have to pay attention to the numbers.

The above picture is my windshield and the stickers are for inspection and emissions testing. Notice the numbers. That's May of 2016. That is not the issue date, that is the expiration date. I just realized yesterday morning that I have been driving around for a month with an expired inspection sticker. I called the guy who does my inspection at lunch time and he's squeezing me in today. He's right up the street from work so I'll drop it off in the morning, walk down to work and then walk back up after work and hopefully he'll be done.

I've driven by several cops in the past month, I'm surprised I haven't been pulled over. I guess it helps driving a newer vehicle. They probably don't pay as much attention to it as they would something that's older and maybe not in so good a shape.

As long as we're on the subject of numbers, what's with the calendar now reading July 1st? I can't believe the year is half over already.


  1. It is slipping by fast. I just realized its a holiday weekend yesterday.

  2. Luck was on your side :)
    It has happened to us before too!

  3. You should own a VW....that way you can be part of the multi-million dollar 'rebate' for their 'crookedness'.

    I did the very same thing quite a while ago; forgetting this sticker nonsense and the serviceman just smiled, slapped on a sticker in minutes without even testing it.

    This country!!!

  4. bob got out of bed this morning and said "july 1st, what is up with that?" unbelievable. so glad you did not get stopped by the inspection police. and so glad Florida doesn't have inspections..

  5. Yikes. I think we've all been guilty of this at one time or another. I know I have. I never got pulled over though. I'm happy about that too.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hug to you and lots of scritches for Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  6. Yes, I think the cops pay more attention to old rattletraps and little sports cars. You really got a break. And how cool the garage is right by work!

  7. Those are pretty big 5s! How funny you missed it but thankfully the cops missed it too. This year is going by way too fast!

  8. July is our 'everything auto' month - insurance, inspection, registration. I get emails from the insurance company and the DMV...

  9. Well atleast you figured it out before you got stopped.

  10. Been there!! Done That!! So glad that you discovered it before the cops did! You are right...where on earth has the year gone...JULY???? It is hard to believe!!
