NY lawmakers back crackdown on unregistered car dealers

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – New York legislators have approved a bill intended to crack down on unregistered car dealers who use city streets as showrooms.

So-called “curbstoners” are unlicensed car dealers who sell used cars for profit on public streets and are unregulated and untaxed.

Lawmakers say they put unsafe vehicles on the street and congest traffic with their sales spots.

The bill that has passed the state Senate and Assembly would increase penalties for unlicensed car dealing from $1,000 currently to $4,010 for a third infraction within 30 months.
