Statute applied to defendant, where defendant argued that traffic statutes involved only applied to businesses and state vehicles; statute did not violate defendant’s freedom of movement. 77 H. 222 (App.), 883 P.2d 644 (1994).
It is within the power of the legislature to motivate compliance with safety inspection and liability insurance laws by imposing the penalty specified in this section; because the offense of "expired safety sticker" is a civil traffic infraction and not a criminal offense, the district court improperly found motorist "guilty". 107 H. 508 (App.), 115 P.3d 687 (2005).
