Inspection Stickers Moving to Left Corner of Windshields

Posted: 12/07/2017 08:00:00 -05:00 Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- State vehicle inspection stickers will soon have to be slapped on the lower left-hand corner of windshields.

Virginian motorists have long had to place inspection stickers in the bottom center of windshields. But local media reports that the rules will change Jan. 1 for inspections that expire in 2019.

The new placement of the stickers will be in line with other U.S. states.

Virginia State Police say the change was needed because of new crash-avoidance technology.

In a statement, they say the "new technology utilizes the center of the windshield" and placement of items there could stop crash avoidance systems from working.

There's no need to try to peel off existing inspection stickers from a car's glass. The change only applies for newly issued 2019 stickers.
