Officials targeting illegal inspection stickers

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Authorities are cracking down on illegal vehicle inspection stickers.

In the last 10 weeks, more than 200 fraudulent stickers have been found and confiscated.

According to reports, the stickers have been issued to drivers without proper paperwork or whose vehicles wouldn't pass inspection.

34 percent of the stickers were issued to drivers with suspended licenses, 26 percent from those without insurance and 12 percent were held by drivers with arrest warrants.

The crackdown is also targeting inspection stations who are fraudulently issuing inspection stickers.  Violators may have their inspection license suspended or revoked.  In some cases, station owners or inspectors could be arrested.
