Why are there so many unregistered and uninspected cars and trucks driving around Clearfield? I see at least a couple a day. I doubt they have insurance either.

I think what's even more frightening are the ones that actually are inspected driving around. I can't imagine how in the world some of these black-smoke guzzling rust buckets manage to pass inspection. Scarier still is when I see people driving in these death-traps with children in the back.

Some of them are not really inspected. When I first moved down here I found out that buying an inspection sticker was common practice. You could buy one from a station that did inspections or a junk yard off a wrecked car.

Now what kind of person would buy an inspection sticker? What kind of of person would just run their car without a current inspection or registration? Scruffs, that's who.

Not sure of the reason. I think the state of the nation is more important than worrying about a vehicle that isnt inspected or registered. Maybe we should put the countries debt, the elderly, the poverty on the back burner and go after the ones driving illegal vehicles

I agree. A lot of the present stations "lick and stick" as it is. Many of the vehicles that have stickers on them, are not safe either. Why worry about petty little things. There is so much more to worry about, like drunks that can wreck a brand new,$40,000 SUV, with a proper sticker. Or one of the morons from the methodone clinic driving mommys van.

Before you go judging, is it the first couple of days in a new month, if so with the way working people have to work, the inspection may have just slipped their mind. As far as the registration, well there is really no excuse for that, you get a registration renewal in the mail three months befor it expires.
And for out of date imspections in the middle of the month it was a $500.00 scruff mobile that was purchaced by walefare with a $1,000.00 vehicle check. So the remainder of the $500.00 went into a needle and into their scruff drug choice arm.

Sounds like you missed your daily trip to the meth clinic. So just what did you do with the extra money you had left after you bought the car? Go to Marys trash house and buy cocaine from Duncan?

Maybe we should all just say screw it and not abide by any laws. Why should I maintain my vehicle legally when Joe Scruff does as he pleases?

You guys are clueless. You just like to spout off about things you know nothing about. Making up things makes you look stupid ----not smart.
Do you know exactly what a person has to do to get an inspection license? If an inspection mechanic puts a sticker on a vehicle that is not operational, he could lose his license or possibly go to prison if a person dies from his neglect.
As for the buying stickers, have you ever tried to actually pull a sticker off? Go try it. The state has made those stickers so it's impossible to remove and reuse them.
Do you know exactly what would pass inspection and what wouldn't? I doubt it. Just because it's a black-smoke guzzling rust bucket doesn't mean it's not road and inspection worthy.
Do your homework before you bash anything.

I have a PA state inspection license. I had hours of in-class and book training, we had to learn how to use a headlight aiming system, and for part of the final test, I actually had to inspect a car. It's simple, if it won't pass, it won't get a sticker. There are too many items involved in a proper inspection for me to list, but here is what people try to get away with. Rust holes, no mufflers, no converters, brakes, etc. Why even try to get away with it. If you get pulled over with an expired sticker, you have 10 days to show that it got a proper inspection, or you get fined. And by the way, there is nothing wrong with a "black smoke blowing" diesel.

it's cause your not allowed to run a respectful business today without the complaining about everything. it's always someone thats on ssi,sd,or the welfare that goes out works under the table ,supposed to be disabled{can't lift,heart problems,etc.ya get the point} that turns the business person in for stupid crap. the officials are busy taking care of the stupid complaints.before they make a complaint they should make sure the skeletons are out their closets.yes i have inspection liscense ,knows what will pass &what won't.your inspected also. so don;t be to quick to make judgement.

The issue at hand is when one of these junkers has a mechanical failure and causes an accident that injures or kills someone else because the owner was too lazy to go get their scruff-mobile inspected. Remember the tractor-trailer that lost its breaks coming down Rockton Mountain and took out three houses near the Middle School? It said right in the police report that the truck's break system was shot and the driver had not gotten the truck inspected. That whole mess could have been avoided! He's damn lucky not to have killed anyone or himself for that matter.
Accidents do happen, but the whole purpose of getting your car inspected is to catch potential problems before they become an issue. It does seem trivial when compared to some of the other problems going on, but these laws are in place for a very good reason.

My dear sweet Angela, my daily trip to the meth clinic consists of physcially loading eight to ten thousand pounds of freight onto a 53' tractor trailer by an employer who randomly drug tests the employees.
My family and job are way too important to waste it away the like you do.
I agree with almost everyone here that it is lazy ssi and opps I have arthritis in my left pinky finger although I am right handed so I am going get disability folk like your self who abuse the system.
Why not pop out another crack addictid baby and have him or her labled a tard so you can collect ssi, disability, access, food and cash assistance with the rest of your scruff brood.
