Prohibited PracticesUnder the Vehicle Inspection Statute, when a commercial vehicle such as a semi-truck is at an inspection station, there are prohibited practices such as the following.

  • Any person employed by the Washington State Patrol to order, recommend, or direct corrections to vehicle equipment,
  • Any person employed by WSP to perform any repairs or adjustment to a commercial vehicle or equipment, and
  • For any person to solicit the repair of any vehicle or vehicle equipment at the inspection station or upon any public highway adjacent to the inspection station.

If a person violates this statute, they may receive a traffic infraction.

This statute helps protect regular drivers on the road from commercial vehicles and drivers operating on the road when they are not in compliance with the law.
