Cambridge, MA asked in Traffic Tickets for Rhode Island

Q: Rhode Island: I had been pulled over for a expired inspection. It ran out 12/16 and got pulled over 3/10/17.

I got my ticket and will be paying it off and get my car legitimately inspected but my questions are... (1) how will the police know if I inspected it if I do NOT need to show up if the ticket gets paid before the court date. (2) the police gave me 30 days to get it inspected, if I went to the mechanic, say, 20 days into the 30 and I fail my inspection test, would that me I have an additional 30 days to get it fixed?

A: You will likely need to go to court and show them the inspection printout.

They have a computer system to track the inspections now and if you do not comply, you may receive a notice of suspension
