A PROPOSED STATEWIDE ODOMETER VIOLATION ENFORCEMENT SUPPORT SYSTEM

The report discusses legal requirements regarding odometers and odometer disclosure, the magnitude of the problem of odometer fraud, and a review of relevant literature and current North Carolina state practices in this area. The report also gives a detailed account of titling and registration procedures practiced in NC, and presents recommendations for capturing odometer readings statewide. The two primary components of the proposed system are: (1) an odometer disclosure statement on the title form and any dealer reassignment forms at the time of motor vehicle transfer, and (2) odometer disclosure in conjunction with (annual) motor vehicle registration. The system also emphasizes the importance of increased consumer awareness of the nature of the problem of odometer fraud and legal steps that can be taken against suspected violators.
