October 11, 2007

COLUMBUS, Ohio --- The state of Ohio is cracking down on illegal body shops, taking steps to ensure the facilities are brought into compliance with state and federal regulations. Since Sept. 1, the Ohio Board of Motor Vehicle Collision Repair Registration and Attorney General Marc Dann's Office have filed injunctions against 23 repair shops in the state, CollisionWeek reported. Included in the suits are three facilities in Clermont County, eight in Butler County and 12 in Hamilton County."It's a consumer issue, and I would suggest everyone visit our Web site at prior to choosing a repair facility," said Michael Greene, executive director of the agency. "Consumers can check for registered shops at our e-licensing verification link and learn the rights of a motorist when seeking auto repairs."Back in March, the Lorain County Court of Common Pleas issued injunctions on three body shops in Lorain County. All three facilities were ordered to stop making repairs until they complied with all registration laws. These three shops, CollisionWeek reported, were: Rapid Auto Body, Jeff's Auto Body and Fender Mender. Rapid Auto Body is now in the process of becoming registered.The Ohio Board of Motor Vehicle Collision Repair Registration was created in 1999.
