State Suspends Dealer for Selling Temporary Registrations

State Suspends Dealer for Selling Temporary Registrations Featured

The Michigan Secretary of State has suspended the license of Miller Used Cars after an investigation with area law enforcement found multiple violations including the alleged illegal sale of temporary vehicle registrations.The investigation began after the Michigan State Police informed the Secretary of State’s Office of numerous traffic stops involving vehicles displaying temporary registrations, often called paper plates, allegedly issued by the Flint dealership. The drivers of the vehicles each provided statements indicating the temporary registrations had been purchased illegally and were also unable to provide sufficient vehicle purchase documentation.Secretary of State investigators conducted an inspection of Miller Used Cars, with assistance from the Genesee Area Investigations Network. Upon inspection, investigators found that dealership staff could not provide requested records, could only account for 7 of 385 temporary registrations purchased, and could not account for more than 60 vehicles, even though they had the vehicle titles in possession.
