What happens if you are caught on television driving with an expired safety inspection sticker? Well, if you are Washington Capitals right winger Tom Wilson, you have a friendly fan offer a helping hand, Scott Allen of The Washington Post reports.
During the final episode of Epix’s “Road to the NHL Winter Classic,” Wilson and teammate Michael Latta were driving in Wilson's vehicle when the sticker - which expired on Nov. 30, 2014 - was spotted.
That is when Capitals fan Mike Wolffe, who is an auto mechanic and certified inspector in Virginia, reached out to help.
Tom Wilson, if you are reading, take Mike up on his offer and update that inspection sticker before you end up with a ticket. Wolffe emailed the Post to explain why Wilson should get the inspection done soon.
“As a certain Nationals player can attest, Virginia doesn’t mess around when it comes to car-related violations of the law, so whoever actually owns that car, Wilson or Latta, should probably fork over the $16 it costs for an inspection and avoid a $75 ticket,” Wolffe wrote, referencing Jayson Werth’s reckless driving conviction. “And if he comes to the shop I work at, that would be nice, too.”
