Old Vehicle Inspection Sticker Program Reinstated

March 28, 2006

Assemblyman Bob Oaks (R,C-Macedon) joined with DMV Commissioner Nancy Naples in announcing that New York will be returning to the same inspection sticker system that has been in force for many years.

“Residents in my district and around the state voiced their concerns on the proposed changes,” said Oaks. “I joined several of my fellow legislators in sponsoring legislation to revert to the old system and also urged the governor to have the proposal reconsidered. Ultimately, your voice was heard in Albany.”

“To save the taxpayers money, the DMV is going to continue using the ‘new’ inspection stickers until January of next year when our ‘old’ stickers will reappear,” said Oaks.

Law enforcement officials have been instructed to ignore the dated boxes that all stickers currently have on them. Effective immediately, New York motorists will have until the end of their designated inspection month to get their vehicles checked.
