After the Vermont State Police was formed, the remaining six Motor Vehicle Inspectors saw a reduction in their patrol duties. Their primary functions were crash investigation, suspension of licenses, and assisting Motor Vehicle Examiners in the distribution of registrations. Motor Vehicle Inspectors continued with their roadside inspections, verifying at spot checkpoints that motor vehicles were properly registered and equipped to be on the road. Inspectors monitored inspection stations to verify that they were keeping proper documentation and properly inspecting vehicles to which they affixed inspection stickers.
