NBC News 10 WHEC delivered two stories this week regarding NY motor vehicle inspectors as follows: “This week’s power outage effecting the DMV’s inspection system appears to be up and running again. The system began to come back online after frustrations were plentiful within auto shops & for auto owners. Many of those with expiring inspections were attempting to take care of business and were told they would need to return. At My-Tee Auto, his mechanics were unable to connect to the state’s inspection system.

The system is designed so that you cannot keep doing inspections and filing them with the state later on. They had to turn away customers. There were similar headaches over at East Ave. Auto. Apparently no one was able to get any answers from the Department of Motor Vehicles.  The main help line at the state was down, nobody could get through.  The DMV did call back to say the inspection system is administered by a third party named Opus. Finally at 5 pm, Opus felt that the problem had been corrected. People obviously depend on them for inspections of their cars, and they (in turn) then depend state’s system for process completion. According to the auto shops, this is not the 1st instance of this happening, yet was the lengthiest the system has been down. While the DMV thinks the issues have been repaired, it may be best to call ahead to make sure everything is going smoothly again. The full article is available here.

Governor Andrew Cuomo approved a new vehicle check during yearly state inspections. The Senate passed a rule requiring auto inspection sites to verify if a vehicle’s windows are tinted beyond 70% of the outside light threshold. Cuomo gave approval to this new auto check, stating that if windows are too dark, the vehicle will now have failed an inspection.” The story is available here.

In the June 21, 2016 edition of Recycling Today, an article titled ‘Arizona auto recycler reimbursed for off-target police raid’ was posted with the following news: “The Hendrix Salvage Company in Phoenix, AZ was the target of a suspected auto theft plot and was raided by city and state authorities in 2013. This raid was covered by reported by media outlets, including RT. Hendrix and its owners recently were cleared of the charges, and more than (2) years later Hendrix has announced an agreement with the city and state designed in part to help the firm restore its reputation. According to attorneys with Simpson P.C., Hendrix accepted $180K from the city of Phoenix & the state of Arizona in order to settle a suit the organization filed after no charges resulted from the raid.

The raid was part of an sting of regional salvage yards known at the time as “Operation Tin Man.” Authorities raided the salvage yards in 2013, charging some staff for allegedly trafficking in stolen property. Officers seized bank accounts and equipment from Hendrix, and law enforcement authorities alerted regional media outlets in advance so they could publicize the raids. Authorities later conducted a press conference to make criminal allegations against some Hendrix family members.” According to their attorneys, investigators got it wrong. No criminal charges were ever filed against owners Lyle or Ronnie Hendrix nor against any Hendrix Salvage Company employee. All of Hendrix’ seized equipment & accounts were ultimately brought back to the firm in 2014.

Hendrix Salvage is a commercial auto recycler that has been doing business in the area for more than 15 years and always had been a friend to the PD and the community. The investigators should have just talked with us instead of rushing in with guns & taking everything. The state began forfeiture proceedings in January 2014, but those ended with a dismissal and the property being returned. Hendrix only wanted an apology, a simple apology, and that would have been the end of it.  Instead, Forrester says, when no apology was forthcoming, the subsequent settlement even the playing field.” The complete article is available here.

Jessica Flores of FOX 10 reported that Lyle Hendrix described the raid as “It was kind of like an army style raid, they threw a lot of people on the ground, marched them outside & confiscated everything in the yard and the equipment.” Her article is available here.

A July 9, 2016 article in the New Haven Register authored by Luther Turmelle titled ‘Electric vehicle program in Connecticut gets infusion of cash’ told us the following: “A Connecticut-based incentive program to encourage more purchases of electric vehicles is getting a new flow of cash. According to Rob Klee, commissioner of the state Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, The CT Hydrogen & Electric Automobile Purchase Rebate (CHEAPR) program is getting $1M.

Klee says it’s the perfect time to think about the advantages offered by EVs. One of the larger advantages is the rebate available which offers up to $3K for those who buy or lease an eligible vehicle. Without the new funding, the CHEAPR program was projected to run out of money by July. The CHEAPR program was launched in May 2015 using state funds as part of an agreement to allow Northeast Utilities to merge with MA-based NSTAR and form what is known as Eversource Energy. A 2nd wave of money from the state’s merger agreement with the utilities was in addition to the incentive program.

Since its launch, the program delivered just over $1.5 million for the purchase or lease of over 600 new vehicles. A total of 159 fully electric vehicles such as the Nissan LEAF, as well as 467 plug-in style cars that have range extending or hybrid capabilities such the Chevy Volt were sold. David Stevens, owner of Stevens Ford, said he was pleased to hear that CT was offering additional funding to the program.  Stevens Ford is one of the many dealers offering vehicles in the program.

Rich Ogurick, chairman of Cheshire’s Energy Commission, says locating a charging station, which has outlets for (2) vehicles, was difficult. Eric Richter, VP of Property Management for Philips Edison, said they plan to install fifty of these in the next year. Richter says that those who already have EVs can recharge their cars at zero cost for the next (3) years if they use the station outside Big Y.

The incentive program is administered through the EVConnecticut, an agreement between DEEP and the state DOT. The vehicle rebates from the CHEAPR program function on a sliding scale. The maximum rebate amount of $3,000 is available for lease or purchase of EVs with the best battery capacity. Other offerings include $1,500 and $750 for electric vehicles that travel shorter distances.

Our next topic examines a controversial topic that preys on individuals who are often unable to manage their personal finances or are experiencing troubling economic setbacks. The dreaded car title loan shops have appeared virtually “overnight” in this country. As laws have tightened the profitability of the payday loan lending business, it appears that these arguably predatory lenders have emerged. On January 28, 2016 an article composed by Susan Tompor of the Detroit Free Press titled ‘High-risk auto title loans blocked’ informed us of the following: “A fight to stop collections on auto title loans in MI continued with the granting of a preliminary injunction against an outfit DBA Liquidation LLC. Michigan AG Bill Schuette says the Ingham County Circuit Court issued the injunction to stop collections related activitities on illegal title loans to consumers.

Over (400) people took loans borrowing against their cars, which included high interest rates from 161% to 251%. The amounts of the loans ranged between $1K-5K and are secured using customer’s vehicles. Vehicle title loans aren’t permitted in MI, as they have high rates & risk of losing one’s car. This company does business as Vehicle Liquidation, Auto Loans, Car Loan, Sovereign Lending and more. Those with these loans who had their vehicle repossessed should contact the Michigan AG Office, who is working with the Secretary of State & the courts helping consumers with this debt to clear their titles. Schuette says he’d move for a default judgement — which would cancel these debs. A lawsuit alleges that Liquidation provided unlawful such loans and isn’t authorized for business in MI. The loans, done through online applications, resulted in possession of the vehicle title & installation of GPS tracking devices on the borrower’s vehicle.” The full article is available at this link.

Next we venture across the country to Arizona, where these title loan outfits are on the verge of being exterminated as well. On January 26, 2016 in the azdailysun.com an article titled ‘Car title loans worse than payday lenders’ was posted by Howard Fischer with the following details: “Rep. Debbie McCune Davis, says the interest rates charged to consumers are abusive, and the title loans are sometimes worse because there is no limit on the amount that can be borrowed. She wants to require title lenders to have the 36% annual interest cap that applies to other lenders. A report says the title lending industry has exploded in AZ since 2008 to include over 600 lenders. State law says any interest rates over 36% are illegal usury. Ms. Davis thinks that if there is too much risk to lend at 36%, then perhaps the loan shouldn’t be made. The story can be read in its entirety here.

In the US today people are simply living beyond their means. In our society we borrow for homes, cars, furniture, electronics, vacations and so much more. According to my research over 70% of US consumers have a credit card. Meanwhile, “26% of 50-to-54-year-olds have no retirement savings”[1]. For whatever reason, financial instability seems to be the norm in the US these days. I am not sure whether it is a lack of hard work or simply the idiotic spending habits among Americans, but those taking these title loans are essentially reaching out to the lender of last resort.
