New York using new inspection stickers

Albany, NY – Starting this year, mechanics in New York are required to use new safety inspection stickers with more precise expiration dates-narrowed from the month to the ten days in which the last inspection occurred. The state department of motor vehicles made the change to spread out a flood of last-minute inspections at the end of the month--but some mechanics say that doesn't solve the problem of motorists with expired stickers.
