Waste of Time and Money

I got my car inspected yesterday.  According to the inspection results that I was handed, my horn is functional, my fuel tank cap works, and my headlights work.  Funny thing is, the guy who “inspected” my car never looked at these things, or anything else for that matter.  He drove my car into the inspection bay, so I guess he tested the brakes, but that’s it.

Why does the state require car inspections?  Nominally, it’s about making sure the roads are safe by keeping dangerous vehicles off the road.  What really happened: The inspector got a few bucks.  The state got a few bucks.  I stood around smelling gas fumes for 15 minutes.  And the roads aren’t one whit safer.  As the title of the post goes: waste of time and money.
