Texas Car Inspection Investigation

Apparently safety, or at least the appearance of it, can be bought — but only at a premium. Undercover police officers arrested two men in Houston for fraudulently selling Texas state inspection stickers to drivers who either don’t have insurance or whose cars were unable to pass the state’s mandatory emissions test. According to the police, Ziyad Ebrahimi and Jose Jesus Garcia were selling the stickers for $125 when state inspections cost only $39.75. The worst part about this problem? Scams like this one force law-abiding citizens to share the roads with hundreds of thousands of dangerously uninsured drivers.
