Ohio Board Locks Down Three Cincinnati Shops - BodyShop Business

Ohio Board Locks Down Three Cincinnati Shops

The Ohio Board of Motor Vehicle Collision Repair Registration carried out a court order April 27 to lock down three illegal auto repair facilities in Cincinnati.

Injunctions were granted against Jesse Paige, owner of Jesse’s Auto Body; Mike Weigel, owner of Mike’s Auto Body & Repair; and Will Scruggs, owner of Will’s Auto Repair & Body Shop; all of Cincinnati, for failing to register with the board.

“Enforcement efforts against illegal repair facilities increased in 2007 and 2008, and the trend will continue,” said Michael Greene, executive director of the board. “It is not the board’s intention to close down repair shops, but rather bring them into compliance with state and federal regulations.”

When the shop owners failed to meet the registration requirements after the injunction, the board filed a “Contempt of Court” complaint. The Court issued a deadline for the owners to become compliant with the Board and pay back fees. When the deadline passed without compliance, the Board was granted a “Lock-down” order. The businesses will remain locked down until they are registered.

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 member of the public, who has no financial interest in the auto repair industry.
