Injunctions Granted Against Unlicensed Ohio Shops - BodyShop Business

Injunctions Granted Against Unlicensed Ohio Shops

The Ohio Board of Motor Vehicle Collision Repair Registration, in conjunction with the Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray’s Office and the Jefferson County Common Pleas Court, were granted injunctions July 15 against two collision repair shops operating illegally in the state.

Injunctions were granted against Rick Fair, owner of Rick and Di’s Auto Body in Tiltonsville, and Kevin Robinson, owner of Robinson’s Collision Center in Richmond, for failing to register with the board. The court issued a deadline for the owners to become compliant with the board and pay back fees, or the shops would be locked down.  

Michael Greene, executive director of the agency, said, “Enforcement efforts against illegal repair facilities increased over the past several years. It is not the board’s intention to close down repair shops, but rather bring them into compliance with state and federal regulations."

More information:

The Ohio Board of Motor Vehicle Collision Repair Registration was created in 1999 to regulate the collision repair industry and provide consumer protection. The board is entirely funded by registration fees from collision shops, auto glass businesses, paintless dent repair companies and airbag replacement units throughout Ohio.  

The board is made up of five collision repair shop owners, one mechanical repair shop owner and one person to represent the public who has no financial interest in the auto repair industry.
