How was the limo allowed on the road?

It's a question many were left wondering following the fatal Schoharie crash that killed 20 people on Oct. 6.

According to the Albany Times Union, the 2001 Ford Excursion limo was somehow able to get a regular inspection sticker from a DMV.

The limo should have been subject to a thorough review from a state DOT inspector, however, instead it received a 'passed' DMV inspection sticker. 

This is against state law.

All DMV approved inspection sites are required under state regulations to "refuse to perform the inspection," if a stretch limo requests one.
