There are a few things to keep in mind when driving with an expired inspection sticker. First, don't drive if your sticker is definitely expired - you could get pulled over and ticketed. If your sticker has just expired and is still within the allowable grace period, you may be able to drive, but it's best to check with your local department of motor vehicles. Also, make sure your car is properly inspected and up to code before driving it - you don't want to get ticketed for that, too. Finally, be aware of the consequences of getting pulled over with an expired inspection sticker - in addition to a ticket, you may have your car towed or impounded.
