1956 VEHICLE INSPECTION
SEPT. 15, 1955
Since September 15, 1955, you
can get your vehicle inspected
and get a 1956 sticker placed on
your windshield. There are nu-
merous changes in the inspec-
tion procedure and requirements
for the next inspection period.
The mechanics who will be ap
proved by the Department of
Public Safety to do your inspec-
tion will be better qualified to do
that job because they are re-
quired to pass a written exam-
ination on the laws and rules of
the inspection before they are
approved by the Inspector who
serves this area. They have also
been given an opportunity to at-
tend meetings held in each coun
ty, at which time the rules, reg-
ulations and requirements were
fully explained to them, to bet-
ter enable them to pass the
written examination given them
later. . Y
When you present your ve-
hicle for inspection, and the me-
chanic tells you that he must do
this or that to your vehicle that
was not required last time, do
not fall out with him or accuse
him. All the approved Inspec-
tion stations are under a one
thousand dollar bond, and, fur-
thermore, may be fined in court
or have their Station License
suspended or both. Here are
some of the new requirements
in the inspection which the me-
chanic will check, in addition to
what was required last time. All
brakes except power brakes
must have a two Inch pedal re-
serve and the brake lines and
wheel cylinders are checked for
leaks. Power brakes must have
at least a one inch pedal reserve.
All cracker or broken light lens
or reflectors must be replaced.
Cracker or broken rear view mir
rors must be replaced on ve-
hicles requiring such mirrors.
License plates need not only be
lighted up by a white light, but
must be in the clear and unob-
scured so that all of it can be
