WHO'S LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR SAFETY
WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR VEHICLE?
So you were most likely taught to look both ways before you cross the road.
Tie your shoes so you don’t trip. Your parents instilled in you the importance of safety,
and warned you of the dangers that might fall upon you if you didn’t take precautions.
So here we are in 2020 relearning to wash our hands, cover our mouths and keep our distance.
These are all steps to keep ourselves safe and they all seem a little deja vu-ish if you ask
most people (mama told you so.)
In New Jersey the state used to require safety regulations to enforce Mama’s fine and early teachings.
They were imperative for you to be able to pass NJ state inspections.
If your vehicle fell short of the requirements they slapped a big red rejection sticker in your windshield..
Ever present are long lines as the NJMVC reopen.
Inspection stickers are dating back to February and March of this year and there’s a chance
that when you go to get that task taken care of you are going to be sitting in a very long line.
In August of 2010 Governor Christie changed the law and safety inspection are no longer needed.
Only emissions inspections are now required to be done every two years for passenger vehicles.
Commercial vehicles still have to pass the safety and emissions inspection every year.
Inspection in NJ is free for passenger vehicles if you go to the NJ Motor Vehicle Inspection facilities.
There are private inspection facilities you can go to that are regulated by the NJMVC.
These facilities are certified and convenient however they do charge a fee for inspection.
Considering the length of the lines and the time required to sit idle and patiently,
you may find that the fee is worth paying. Locate your PIF in NJ.
So, who’s making sure you tied your shoes and that you looked both ways when it
comes to your vehicle safety now?
