‘Totally Legit’ Forged Car Inspection Stickers Get NY Drivers Arrested
By Nicole Rodrigues, 12 Aug 2022
Close enough? The New York State police have reported nabbing a man for a rather poor and hilarious forgery of his car inspection.
The fake document was spotted on a car in Johnstown that belonged to a 30-year-old man, and it seemed like all he thought was needed to evade the authorities was an adhesive note and a marker.
However, eagle-eyed officers spotted the crude replica and apprehended the man. He was given a ticket and a court hearing for criminal possession of a forged document by the Johnstown County Court.
Funnily enough, this isn’t the first time this has happened. Another fake inspection note was found by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office (shown at the top), drawn rather similar to the one found in Johnstown. This one had a random bar code attached to it and failed to write out each individual month and instead substituted it with twelve squiggles along the edge of the note.
Another was found in Mechanicville as well, though it was a better attempt at replicating what the certificate actually looked like, and even included a wonky drawing of the state seal next to the year.
