As the term "curbstoner" gains awareness in the general media, StopCurbstoning.com is attracting attention and web traffic. Dealers can join the fight, uniting in a common cause to stop curbstoning from harming their business and their customers. 

BIRMINGHAM, AL – June 27, 2011 – It has been over a year since AutoTec, the company behind AuctionACCESS, joined with other industry organizations to launch StopCurbstoning.com in a sustained campaign to stop curbstoning. Since its launch, the website has drawn national attention to the issue of curbstoning.stop curbstoning and all curbstoners by joinging the dealer network. NIADA and NADA members welcome

“When we started, ‘curbstoner’ was an industry term – it wasn’t a part of the general vocabulary,” Chuck Redden, president of AutoTec, says. “In the past several months, we’ve seen the term pop up more and more in news reports and legislative efforts.

StopCurbstoning.com has dramatically increased awareness among consumers and lawmakers that curbstoning isn’t just against the law – it also compromises public safety and reduces revenues.”

One recent StopCurbstoning.com report follows the trail of lost municipal revenue associated with a single curbstoner. Dealers can download printed informational tools designed to combat curbstoning and support the value and security that dealerships offer their customers.

It’s no wonder that traffic to StopCurbstoning.com has more than doubled as the issue of curbstoning attracts more and more attention.

“We urge all dealers to join the campaign to stop curbstoning,” Redden says. “Now that the issue has gained traction, we’d like to see more dealerships link their websites to StopCurbstoning.com. That shows potential customers that the dealership supports legal, licensed transactions – and, it educates customers about the risks of buying from so-called ‘private parties.’”

THE STATE OF MI. STATES THAT THEY DONT HAVE THE MANPOWER, TO POLICE THIS PROBLEM. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF THE DID THEY WOULD COLLECT ENOUGH TAXES TO PAY THE MANPOWER TO WATCH THIS PROBLEM, OR WORK A LITTLE HARDER TO DO THIER JOBS. I HAVE TALKED TO ONE OF THEM AND THEY SAID THAT THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO THAN POLICE THIS. I THINK WE AS DEALERS NEED TO GET MORE INVOLVED TO COMBAT THIS PROBLEM! WE NEED TO KEEP OUR OWN BACK YARDS CLEAN ALSO! THANKS FOR YOUR TIME!
