Times are tough, we get that. But when it comes to operating a motor vehicle in the State of New York, rules are rules.

A driver in Upstate NY was pulled over recently and when Troopers from the Endwell State Police took a closer look at the vehicle, they couldn't help but notice something really "off" about the vehicle inspection sticker placed on her windshield.

It's pretty obvious to the naked eye, and while it didn't fool anyone, you gotta respect this motorist from Upstate New York's moxie.


Information on the inspection sticker contained all the pertinent information in great detail, the only problem was that it was hand-written using a Sharpie.  In addition to the fake months, there was a message for the cops or anyone else who happened to see it that read:  "SORRY LIFE SUX...INSUFFICIENT FUNDS AND A BABY 2023"

State Police in Endwell posted the image on their social media, and as you can expect, it's gone viral.

Here's how they captioned the post on Facebook on Wednesday:

"Troopers at SP Endwell were conducting another investigation when they caught something off about this inspection sticker..."

There weren't any other details regarding the traffic stop, and the motorist's name and charges weren't revealed. Our guess is that the Troops gave her a bit of a break!  Penalties and fines vary from state to state, but if your inspection sticker is expired more than 60 days, or you fail to affix an inspection sticker the fine is $100.

Heartwrenching Look at Beloved Capital Region Concert Venue Before Demolition

WARNING: Under no circumstances should you enter this property. By doing so you risk bodily harm and/or prosecution for trespassing on private property.

The Starlite Music Theater opened in 1957 and was a popular venue located in Latham. There were many acts that passed through the Starlite until 1997. It was a 3,000-seat theater in the round. In the 1980s I saw Belinda Carlisle of the Go Go's at the Starlite Music Theater. Kenny Rogers, The Monkees, Weird Al Yankovic, Jonny Cash, Run DMC, Diana Ross, and more graced the stage. The Starlite closed its doors in 1998 and laid dormant for years. Then in December 2012, the Starlite was demolished. Here are pictures of the venue in the summer of 2012 before it was leveled.
