    Default Can an Auto Repair Shop Make You Tow Your Vehicle for Safety Reasons

    If an auto body shop performs diagnostic work on your car, and you don't want to continue with repairs, can they make you have the vehicle towed to a different location for service? The owner, who is in Ohio, would prefer to drive the vehicle, but the service center says that because it is unsafe it must be towed.

    Default Re: Can an Auto Repair Shop Make You Tow Your Vehicle for Safety Reasons

    I suspect that the dealership is adhering to the language of O.R.C. Sec. 4513.02(A), "No person shall drive or move, or cause or knowingly permit to be driven or moved, on any highway any vehicle or combination of vehicles which is in such unsafe condition as to endanger any person." I suggest that you contact the state attorney general's office for clarification or possible assistance.
