Sharp razor blade, but most of state's inspection stickers won't be reusable after removed.

Try painting nail polish remover on the sticker. Let it soak for a while and it should peel off.

I'd be extremely careful using nail polish remover (acetone) inside a car. Anything you spill it on can be ruined. And it's hard to use it without spilling.

I also use a straight edge razor to remove the bulk, then use alcohol to remove any gum residue.

Razor then goop-b-gone. You can get it at walmart. It will remove the sticky residue. A little better than alchohol.

If the sticker is on glass that has no aftermarket tinting or defroster lines then start with a fresh razor blade to scrape. Then a solvent to disolve the remaining residue if needed. Put the solvent (any of the above-mentioned is fine) on your rag first, then rub it off. This will prevent any possibility of dripping onto surrounding areas and causing damage.

If you do have aftermarket tinting, then no razor blades or solvent, you're pretty much stuck. You can try to peel it with your fingernail but most often it will still mar the tinting.

If the sticker is over defroster lines then no razor blades, if you scrape a line then that line will not function. So, peel it with your fingernail best you can then use the solvent technique, letting it soak on for awhile to soften it, (yes, your arm will get tired holding the solvent-rag up there waiting for it to soften, that's your punishment for putting a sticker over a defroster line.) (Now you're gonna tell me you didn't put it there, rather the previous owner did, well that's why you got such a good deal on the car huh?)
