State Fines Store for Improperly Issuing Plates Featured

By Staff Writer August 23, 2018

The Indiana Secretary of State revoked the license for Walters Auto Sales and Rentals and has levied fines for failing to provide proper notification after ceasing its business activities as an auto dealer.


The license of an affiliated dealer, Walters Used Car and Truck Superstore LLC, was suspended on July 3, as a result of expired insurance and expired bond. Indiana auto dealers may not issue temporary license plates with a suspended license. Between July 12 and July 19, Walter Auto Sales and Rentals issued six interim plates for vehicles that were sold by the affiliated dealer.


A field investigator was sent to the dealership to conduct an audit of sales records and plate issuances. During the audit, the examiner found that multiple temporary plates had been improperly issued by Walters Auto Sales and Rentals following Walters Used Car and Truck Superstore LLC’s suspension.


Additionally, the examiner found that Walters Auto Sales and Rentals had ceased its business activities as an auto dealer without providing the proper notification.
The dealership is required to pay fines of $500 by Sept. 19 or risk submission of a bond claim. The division may take further action against the dealership if other violations are discovered.
