State Inspection Enforcement.

We live in and have our MH tagged in NY, a state that requires annual inspections. Cars too, but plenty of shops do them.

Being seasonal travelers, this is our summer destination and the MH isn't used.

I was a licensed NYS inspector back in my working days so I know what's safe or not.

Question is, without getting into the safety or emission discussion, if stopped out of state, can other states ticket me for lack of current NY State inspection ?

Not in Florida there is no inspection in this state so there is no law to enforce

I'm not a lawyer or a cop

My OPINION is:

Very few if any LEOs out of State would even know that NY requires an inspection sticker. Also not sure if they can enforce a NY regulation.

If you are stopped it will be for a reason and that is what they will focus on.

Kinda like many states require a special DL to drive rigs over 26,000 pounds cops can't know nor be expected to know all states laws.

I wouldn't stress ove this issue.

I would say yes to being cited because I am sure the Annual Inspection Sticker is dated. If operating in a state which does not require annual inspections probably doesnít have a statute on the books to issue a citation. And always your subject to the discretion of the officer.
As a side note; this would be a sticker in the window OUT OF SERVICE violation if we where considered a commercial vehicle.

If you do not get an inspection, I know you will not be able to register the vehicle for the following year. Not sure if there is a registration suspension after a certain time period in the current year. If and its rare in a mh, you get stopped and they run it and it says that you are in violation who knows.

Out of state I would say no as the inspection requirement is from the state that is licensing the vehicle. How could a Pennsylvania constitutional officer issue you a citation for failing to comply with a NY regulation while you are physically located in Pennsylvania? How would an officer know what is valid and what isn't particularly considering the extensions that were granted over the past year by each state.

I live in Virginia and the first line of the statue here as an example - ",,, registered in Virginia and operated or parked on a highway within the Commonwealth shall submit his vehicle to an inspection,,,".

You also have to consider these are civil and not criminal offenses which adds an additional wrinkle regarding enforcement. Now if they use as a probably cause to pull you over looking for other stuff,,,

Don't worry about it. How many times have you heard of anyone being stopped or even checked?

As a retired NYSP Trooper, no. Police can not enforce another state's laws.

In Texas we have vehicle inspections and if you are out of state and it expires you simply need to register the motorhome and have it inspected when you return to your county of residence. I was advised when I asked about this by a staff member at the registration office. Not sure about NY.

No, you canít be ticketed in another state under your home stateís laws. Lack of venue.

The mention of re- registration denial had me thinking.

According to the NYS DMV site, they will not allow me to renew my registration if there hasn't been an inspection in the last 12 months.

Since its a 2 year registration, I'll wait until its due.

I was about to post that here in Texas, the inspection has to happen before the vehicle's registration can be renewed.

I'm not exactly sure what a person is supposed to do if they happen to be in another state when a Texas registration comes due. Don't know for sure but my guess would be that driving with an expired registration might get you stopped and cited in another state.

So, I would never have to pay for an inspection or registration again if the vehicle stayed out of the state it was registered in? I wouldn't think it would work that way.

Having been in this situation myself (by surprise, since I'd not checked), and curious, I poked around a bit. NYS DMV says to call them if you're out of state, out of inspection, and need to renew your registration. That implies an exception process exists. Also, if you're out of state and out of inspection, you can get an extension that allows you to enter the state without the risk of a ticket, and with 10 days to get an inspection after you re-enter:

https://dmv.ny.gov/inspection/inspection-requirements

Or, you can do what I wound up doing. Take the risk, get home, and get an inspection as soon as possible after that. I was lucky enough to avoid a ticket, but that was before the days of police car mounted license plate readers and the more recent crop of in-car computers networked to DMV records in real time.
