Virginia inspection sticker windshield placement changing next year

Virginia inspection sticker windshield placement changing next year”

Beginning January 1, 2018, State Police says Virginia state inspection stickers will be moved from the bottom-center of your windshield to the bottom-left corner as you sit in your auto looking forward.

The Virginia Dept. of Transportation says they are making the change due to crash avoidance technology that comes in many vehicles now and uses the center of the windshield to detect collisions. The size and appearance of vehicle inspection stickers will not change. In such vehicles, the new technology utilizes the center of the windshield.

The move is necessitated by innovations in the automotive industry, state police said.

According to a news release from Virginia State Police, state inspection stickers will now be placed in the bottom left corner of the windshield, when viewed from inside the vehicle, and will also apply to the placement of any other authorized stickers.

"We do watch for invalid stickers on vehicles across the city", said Capt. Maynard Ratcliff with the Bristol Virginia Police Department.

According to the release, existing Virginia vehicle inspection stickers are to remain in the current middle position until the inspection and the driver is issued a 2019 sticker.

Virginia is one of roughly a dozen states across the country that still requires annual vehicle safety inspections.

During an inspection, a number of items are checked for compliance - including brakes, headlights, signal devices, steering and suspension, windshield, horn and hood area.
