I actually got my car inspected the very month it was due, early in the month, no less! I didn't really have any anxiety about it not passing, but every time I have to have this done, old anxiety memories tickle at the edges of my mind.
My first car, and likely my favorite car ever, a bright orange standard Renault LeCar, had an emergency brake lever that was basically there simply for moral support...just there to look good, essentially. A reason to fail the inspection for sure.
But happily back then inspectors always seemed to need car owner's support during the process. I'd sit in the car doing the horn and lights as guided, and when it was time for the emergency brake test...well, I'd pull the lever up, stick my foot out the door, press it to the ground, and do my darndest to keep the car from rolling as the inspector gave it a nudge from the rear.
And it worked! Year after year it worked!!
And my 47 year old self is happily patting my teenage self on the back for such amazing brilliance.
