So I was visiting a freind in red bank today and a cop pulled me over because he said my passenger loked at him wrong. He then tells me my inspection sticker is fake and my car does not have a record of ever being inspected and it is a 98, and i got it used in 06. Now when i first got it from the dealer i inspected it at the dmv then the second time was at a dmv certified shop. I found the reciept for the first one but I cannot find the second one from this past september. Online it says that it is a 500 dollar fine and possible jail time.
HELP ME GUYS.

Should have asked him how he wants you to look at him. I find it semi humorous he pulled someone over for looking at him wrong but from what I hear that's allot of common law nowadays they find stupid ass reasons.

You didn't say so I'll assume that the car is registered in NJ. All you have to do is go to any inspection station (NOT DMV/MVC office) do not join the line, just go straight to the office and ask for a "reprint". They will ask for your registration and within a couple of seconds they will hand you a reprint of the last inspection result. It does not matter where you last had your vehicle inspected, as long as the system in not down they will be able to get you the paperwork.

Some of the local cops in Jersey you would swear led the local KKK chapter. Most small towns have all white police forces. Redbank included, its just odd that its a town of muchachos and yet every cop I've ever seen there was white.

Just this week I was pulled and my sub box was the prob. They took my sub out and broke it, got tar (off their gloves) on my seat and door.
And they said its not their prob.

The cop <paced> me LOL Got tickets for the tint,hid's,tinted tails, blacked out headlights, lowering springs... Cops ARE DICKS! Regardless of race. Stop playing the fucking race card. Ohh yeah might spend 8-12 days in jail for this, and I have no record...

BTW I AM WHITE! SO WTF DOES THAT MEAN? ????? DONT LOWER YOUR IQ...

ya guys, he was just saying he was black because he feels like thats why he might of gotten pulled over, NOT because he wants us to have sympathy for him. cut the man a break jeez

and as far as what to say to cops, never talk back, NEVER, just be polite and cooperate. i am on probation and believe me that shit doesnt work, even if they think you're talking back and you are really trying to be polite.

If the judge drops it, you still will have to pay court costs, and thats all they really care about. (more money in their pocket)

damn, i thought michigan laws are strict, but i guess here they're not that bad (i now know never to move to jersey lol :) )

just get a print out verifying that your inspect is valid and send that in with the citation and it should get thrown out. If not take it to court and show the judge the paper work and you'll be fine.

You weren't breaking any laws, you can't get punished

im not familiar with the laws in virginia, but how did you get ticketed for hids? and did they measure the VLT% of your tails and headlights?........in ohio your headlights and tails just have to be visible from a certain distance, so it seems it'd be hard to prove.

well lets not pretend that shit doesnt happen to white people or anyone of any other race or ethnicity. there are asshole cops all over the place who are black, white, asian, etc.

and in general canadian society is much more tolerable of minorities and immigrents than the US.

And YES, all minorities get it.

well with all due respect, look around toronto, white is the minority.

lets also not try and pretend that there are a great deal of visible minorties within the emergency services. especially police. i am speaking about toronto of course, i dont have a clue how things are in the states.

you said YOU got pulled over (with regard to cops being unfair to black men), then you went as far as to say "we"...or did you mean audi drivers...

Im not trying to pick a fight. (I hope that I am just misunderstaning you)
When I say Canada Im talking about Canada. Not just T.O. Yes In T-dot (downtown) white is the minority. In the GTA however its a bit diff. I would say about 85 percent or so of the times that Ive been pulled over its been by a white cop. But with that said I have meay cops as friends.

And asfar as the WE part I ment WE PPL. Not we black or we Audi drivers.
Any how I hope that this summer with the zine meets/drives that we (Audizine drivers) we will meet and have a good time hanging.

03-19-2009, 01:25 PM
ya man i hope there were no hard feelings.

race is always a tough issue, and i always try to leave it out as a factor with regard to decision making. sometimes i guess that puts me in a position where i choose to (foolishly) think others put race out of the equation.

as for whites as the minority i meant that more as playful (i work at morningside and 401), all my friends from work are tamil, indian, guyanese or black. thankfully we can actually talk about things like race and not cross any lines.

cliffs: i hate race cards being pulled (not saying that was the case here), but i also hate hearing that people actually still discriminate based on race (sometimes i like to pretend it doesnt happen as much as it does)

no, I did not say you were screwed ............ when you get your "reprint" the info on the "VIR" will match the info on the sticker including the VIN, the CIF/PIF number, the vehicle description and the sticker number itself. Take the "VIR" with you when you go to court ask to speak with the prosecutor before court starts (make sure you drive the vehicle to court, incase they send an officer to check the actual sticker info against the "VIR") and you should be ok. They might throw it out or still have the hearing and have you pay court fees, cheaper but still unfair unfortunately that is the way government works.

Now if the info on the "VIR" does not match ................. that is a different story. Tell me where you are located as I am versed in this subject, no I'm not a lawyer

i think its funny as soon as he was told to goto the inspection station and get a reprint he talks about how it sscrewed and is stuck paying a fine.

i suspect the car wasnt re-registered.. lol

03-19-2009, 04:21 PM
Sorry to hear what happened to you. I agree 100% to what witwer4444 is saying. Just be polite, decline to accept any wrong doing. If the cop still issues you a ticket, fight it in court. Arguing with a cop is a no-win situation.

I can tell you this from my own personal experience. In last three years, I got pulled over four times in four different states (MI, NH, CT and IL). Three times for speeding and once for passing in no-pass zone. But I never got a ticket. I got off on warning in all the four instances. All i did was talked extremely politely and refused to accept any wrongdoing on my part. By the way, I am also not white.

Good luck! Please let us know how it goes!

This experience is a great example (for everyone) on why it is so important to CYA in every aspect of your life. Always document everything, always keep important documents filed, and always carry copies of any documents you have about your vehicle inside the car (for example I even have copies of my emissions check documents inside my Audi... even though I supposedly don't ever have to present them other then to the BMV every 2 years when I register my license plates).

I swear when i read a jersey thread it either ends up with my car got jacked last night or a wreck or the police. Just go get a reprint of your shit and they should drop it.

I told you to go to an inspection station. I did NOT tell you to go to the place where you last got your car inspected .......... now even I am getting suspicious. If you have a good sticker (not expired) in NJ you cannot get your vehicle inspected or even re-inspected at an inspection station (you can only get a re-print at an inspection station if your sticker is not expired), you actually have to go to a PIF (Private Inspection Facility) and pay to get your vehicle inspected. Sorry your story is starting to unravel ................

for those of you that don't live in NJ .......... inspections are done for free at the Inspection Stations. If NJ residents would like to they can opt to have their vehicles inspected at a PIF (Private Inspection Facility) but they have to pay for the inspection. So instead of the original poster going to get a "re-print" of the "VIR" (paperwork) for free, he decided to go to the place where he got his car inspected and they told him they do not do inspections, really?? So he went and got his car re-inspected, well if the sticker in the window was good (not expired) he could not have got it re-inspected at an inspection station he would have had to get it done at a PIF where he would have had to pay for the inspection, remember he could have gotten the re-print for free at an inspection station?? Either he left out a lot of details or I call BS

Yes it is actually... Perhaps there are not as many dickhead cops in your state as you think.. LOL MD and VA law dictate: You cannot change anything on the car out of oem specs... That includes lowering, wheel size and even exhaust if they want to be dicks. I got ticketed on the lights because they were depos and did not have the DOT stamp on them... Ohh BTW I know HID's arent illegal, they are oem, but like you said <Dont argue with the cops...> LOL

NJ inspections stickers have a "chain of custody" (I know it sounds stupid) from the time that they are printed to the time that they are handed out. If this was a ligit (meaning real) sticker then you can still file charges ......... who has the old sticker??

when I got pulled over the cop made me get out of my car and he cut the sticker out with a razor blade. he said he is goin to use it for evidence. As for the shop i think it was all fake and by the way they messed up my after cat o2 sensor and never actually changed the cat. Thanks for your help tho man your posts are real informative.

Do you remember what the sticker looked like?? Do you have any pix of the car showing the sticker?? Are you going to court with a lawyer?? If you are, the lawyer should have access to the "evidence" (ie sticker) prior to the court date. I would love to know the "PIF" number etc on the sticker insert ............. too bad you did not take a photo of the sticker with your cell phone before the cop took it .................
