Warning for anyone buying motor vehicle inspection stickers from people on the road - Eunice City Marshal's have come across 4 fake MVI's in the last 2 weeks. They are made out of paper and the numbers fade on the front making it very obvious to Law Enforcement. The person selling these fake MVI's are usually selling them for $30-$50 because the vehicle cannot pass inspection such as no insurance or registration. Upon traffic stops for fake MVI, most drivers are also driving under suspension. If caught, this is a criminal offense and not a traffic offense. The penalty for altered MVI is not more than $500 and not more than 6 months in jail or both. R. S. 32:1308, R. S. 32:1310. The Eunice City Marshal Office is currently working with Louisiana State Police to find the maker of these altered MVI's.
