BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Feb. 29, 2012 – has unveiled an exciting new tool in the fight against curbstoners: interactive maps of the U.S. and Canada that allow users to report incidents of curbstoning activity in their state or province.

Report Curbstoning in U.S. and Canada“The purpose of is to make people aware of this fraudulent activity and motivate them to take action,” said AutoTec President Chuck Redden. “Creating a dynamic, easy-to-use map interface that lets them report curbstoning to the proper authorities was a natural next step.”

The process for reporting curbstoning varies from state to state in the U.S., as well as in Canadian provinces and territories, where the crime is known as “curbsiding.” In some places, this process means completing an official form, while in others, it’s a direct line to an investigator — there’s no single channel. Thankfully, Stop Curbstoning has compiled the appropriate procedures from each state, province and territory in one place, and directs consumers to the appropriate agency.

And since these processes do change, has made it easy for individuals to contact the site if its information is ever out of date.

“We would really like to hear from state agencies who have updated their reporting procedures from a general complaint line as a result of our efforts,” Redden said. “We’d like to see this issue given the attention it deserves, because people are needlessly getting ripped off every day — and unsafe cars are making their way back onto the road.”
