A vehicle shall be rejected if:
Equipped with more than three forward facing auxiliary driving lamps or fog lamps;

RSA 638:17 Computer-Related Offenses (Sharing of passwords for NHOST).
A person is guilty of the computer crime of unauthorized access to a computer or computer network when, knowing that the person is not authorized to do so, he or she knowingly accesses or causes to be accessed any computer or computer network without authorization. It shall be an affirmative defense to a prosecution for unauthorized access to a computer or computer network that:
- The person reasonably believed that the owner of the computer or computer network, or a person empowered to license access thereto, had authorized him or her to access; or
- The person reasonably believed that the owner of the computer or computer network, or a person empowered to license access thereto, would have authorized the person to access without payment of any consideration; or(c) The person reasonably could not have known that his or her access was unauthorized.
Saf-C 3211.06 Tire Width.
A vehicle shall be rejected if the width of any tire or wheel assembly extends beyond the original manufacturer’s specified fender lines, except in the case of passenger vehicles in which the fender line has been extended by using metal, rigid fiberglass or rigid rubber wheel-well extensions.
Pursuant to RSA 266:57, if not equipped with proper fenders, a vehicle shall be rejected if not equipped with fender guards or flaps, which prevent the throw, splash, spray of water, dirt or other matter upward or to the rear.
Saf-C 3245.05 Inspection Sticker Removal.
Upon removal of any inspection sticker, the sticker shall be immediately destroyed so as to prevent re-affixing or re-issuing to any vehicle.
