state inspections are $21 in New York, It has to be done yearly

things they check:

-All lights have to work, no cracked lenses.
-Parking brake has to hold the vehicle
-TRE's and Ball joints have to be in good condition (no play)
-Functioning horn
-all tires have to have no less than 2/32 of an inch tread, cannot be badly weather checked,
or have slices or gashes in the sidewalls
-Brake linings cannot be metal to metal
-soft brake lines have to be in good condition
-wipers have to work
-no cracks in the windshield
-seat belts have to function and be securely fastened to the body
-if a car was originally equipped with catalytic converters they have to be there
-all mirrors have to be in good condition.
-Vehicles of year 1996 and newer have to be plugged in to the inspection computer, (unless the GVWR is 8500# or greater) any codes = fail. All the OBD readiness monitors have to be set too, if not = fail (no unhooking the battery or clearing codes right before an inspection)

there are also other things that are kind of discretionary:
-Fuel leaks are kind of a grey area but it is usually if it leaks it fails
-bad exhaust leaks can sometimes be a fail.
-If a vehicle is so rotted out that it is unsafe it will fail as well
(New York has no rust law though)

But not all places check those. And some places don't check at all. If I don't get around to fixing my bad o2 sensor in my car by the end of December, I will be paying a visit to one of "those" places.

And with a car newer than 1996 the inspection will not be legit or legal, I have seen cops scan inspection and registration stickers at roadblocks. If you get a sticker put on and you have not have the emissions tested the sticker will not be in the computer, or it won't be in the computer correctly which could lead to fines and/or your car being impounded. I don't care what you do, just a friendly warning.

The only reason why there are roadblocks around here are for escaped criminals or ones that are on the run. You should have seen how many roadblocks we had for bucky.
