Default Re: Pennsylvania boat trailer inspection

Re: Why? vs Revenue.

Blame it on fuel costs. The cops have less money for gas to cruise the highways so they are finding laws they can enforce at less expense. Heck, some places are imposing a "fuel surcharge" on speeding tickets!

You really cant blame the cops individually either. It's a valid law even if the cost is extortionate (if that aint a real word you know what I mean). Like anyone else they have to show 'productivity' to get a good review. All jokes aside we know they dont just sit around all day with coffee and donuts watching the world go past.

Inspections are really just a tax in most states. When my state switched to annual from semi-annual (25 years ago) they doubled the fee. You just gotta grin and bear it.

Good luck!
