  3.  Notwithstanding the provisions of section 307.390, violation of this section shall be deemed an infraction.

(1990) Missouri safety inspection cannot be disclaimed unless the vehicle is sold for junk, salvage or rebuilding. Selling a vehicle "as is" does not alleviate the seller's need to comply with the safety inspection statutes. (Mo.App.) Viene v. Concours Auto Sales, Inc., 787 S.W.2d 814.
