Ohio had a form of statewide inspection as far back as 1937.
This sticker proves there was some sort of inspection when a car tax was paid for registration, the car was inspected for safety.
This 1946 sticker was issued when a roadside inspection turned up bad equipment.
When the owner repaired the flaw the garage placed a sticker on the car.
The sticker was also issued by car dealers to show the car you were buying was safe.
Many states including Indiana, New York and California also used this type of program before they officially opened inspection stations.
We would like to pay a fair price for any that you may want to sell us that do not appear on this site. We will also produce a free reproduction for any good photo, (Front and back) that you send us.
This 1965 Ohio sticker was carefully restored both front and back from a very nice original.
It has our patented "Peel and Stick" format which allows you to place it on the inside of your windshield.
