Hum...down here is Shelby County only Memphis residents have to get their vehicles inspected. I have lived in Shelby county since 1974 but have not lived in Memphis since 1976, thus have not had a personal vehicle inspected since then. Occasionally someone brings this issue up, but it has gone nowhere so far. More of the POS smokers seem to be down in Memphis instead of the surrounding area.
You see a number of cars down here that have the right side of the license plate cut off. This allows the owner of a POS to transfer the expiration sticker to the POS and thus seem legal without paying or getting inspected.

During the 80s in S. Fla. they did away with the state run yearly vehicle inspections.......After 1 year there was sure
a bunch of rattletraps running around with broken/cracked
windshields, bald tires, and no tail lights!!!!!!!!
Also your yearly plate renewal verification was a new
sticker with the year and it was placed in a spot on the
corner of your existing license plate.
But the crooks had a better idea ! Steal your plate and
remove your sticker or even better carry a set of metal
clippers and cut the corner with the new sticker off
your plate and peel it off at home then put it on their
own car !!!!!!!!!!

-I had the same problem when I was visiting someone in Delaware. Drove to Maryland, a cop stopped me and asked where my renewal sticker was. Anyway now once the sticker is
applied if someone tries to take it off it tears into pieces so it's no good to anyone to use. the dmv HAD A GOOD IDEA, wow who woulda thunk
#40 of 41 I need MD State Inspection
Aug 30, 2007 (12:03 pm)
I just took my car to a place here in Laurel Maryland for a State Inspection, after just spending $600 on it to get it ready. Mysteriously, they came up with a dozen more pure BS items they claimed needed to be done. Then they tried to get me to authorized them to do the 'repairs' some highly inflated fee. I am a mechanic myself by trade, so know a crook when I see one. Can anyone recommend a honest MD Inspection Station?

I can't point you to an inspection station but here's a complete list of items required for an inspection in Maryland: Vehicle Safety Inspection (see Appendix A at the bottom of the page)
