The Department of Motor Vehicles says there's a problem with the adhesive on about two million inspection stickers. This stickers aren't sticking to drivers windshields the way they are supposed to.
Drivers can be ticketed; however, in this case, the DMV has alerted police about the issue.
Ken Brown, DMV spokesman, says "We have asked law enforcement to take the appropriate action and use their discretion that they deem appropriate. However, anybody who does want to have a new sticker can write to the Department of Motor Vehicles and say that they have a defective sticker and we will provide a new one free of charge."
To get a replacement sticker, you will need the following information:
- The serial number of the original inspection sticker, if available
- The year and make of the vehicle
- The vehicle plate number
- The odometer reading at the time of the last inspection
- The date of the last inspection
- Your daytime phone number.
You can mail the information to the address below. Please be sure to indicate "defective sticker" in your letter.
