Fairfax Tickets Cars for Expired Inspection While They Are Parked At Repair Shops

Fairfax County has been ticketing cars with expired inspection stickers while they wait for service at repair shops. One shop estimates over $60,000 in fines and fees over the past 6 years. Some shops are paying for these costs out of pocket to keep customers. Another shop owner ended up in a confrontation with the officer. He was charged with felony assault on an officer when he snatched a ticket out of her hand. The charges were later dismissed after an appeal and a jury almost immediately found him `not guilty.'
