I still firmly believe yearly inspections are just a scam to make the state and mechanics more money.
Here and WA they nationalized the system 20 years ago. It used to be mom n pop shops. Something tells me the construction and administration of the new system lined the pockets of corporate interests.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

The machines used for NYS Inspections are just run of the mill PCs with a little OBD-II reader connected via Serial or USB (depends on age.) Some are even supporting a RF feed for the interface plugged into the car. The support is provided by a 3rd party company and they cost an ungodly amount to purchase. They require a "straight out" internet connection - try tossing them behind a VPN and they get VERY cranky.

If they are cranky over a certain amount of time, they essentially self-destruct. Same with DMV office machines...
Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
