    Question 10 Day Extension for Inspection?

    What is the name of your state? NYC, NY

    I had my car inspected and it failed the inspection because the memory was blank (don't know why). They said I'd have to drive my car to get more miles on it to get the memory back. ANYWAY, they gave me a ten day inspection extension. I received a ticket a couple days later. The inspection report was displayed in the window. Was the inspection place supposed to give me something else to display indicating that I had a 10 day extension? If not, why did I get a ticket?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Several things come to mind:

    Was your ticket for non-inspection? You didn't specifically say.
    Did the inspection place tell you displaying the report would keep you safe from ticketing?
    Is it possible the officer didn't see the document?
    What did they say about this when you called the number on the ticket?

    Hi. Thanks for responding.

    It was for missing inspection sticker.

    Did the inspection place tell you displaying the report would keep you safe from ticketing?
    Yes.

    Is it possible the officer didn't see the document?
    No. The document was displayed right on the driver's side of the dash. Perhaps he didn't read it.

    What did they say about this when you called the number on the ticket?
    I didn't call yet.

    The best thing you can do is get your car inspected right away. Then take the extention note and bring it to the ALJ. Explain your story.

    Contrary to most people's beliefs, the officer doesn't have to go looking for evidence that a ticket shouldn't be given.

    I didn't call yet.
    You want to do that, then. Always go to the source first.

    Ok thanx. I guess the document wasn't displayed prominently enough for the officer to easily read. I'll just have to bring it downtown to see if I can get it dismissed or something. Thanks again.

    I just took a quick look through the vehicle code and didn't see any provision for a 10 (or any number) day "extension" to be issued by a garage. What code/statute section is listed on the "extension letter"? It's sounding a lot like the garage has no clue what they're talking about.
