Online car modification Montreal to accept legal modifications
Online car modifications in Montreal will be accepted under the law starting on Friday.
Montreal has been dealing with an illegal car modification industry that has been operating for years.
The new law will allow for legal modifications to be made by licensed dealers.
The Montreal Association of Car Dealers says it has over 15,000 members in the city.
“They’re all over the city, all over our city,” said Jean-Luc Leger, a member of the association.
The association says it will not be accepting any cars with modifications that don’t meet provincial standards.
“We want to make sure that we have cars that meet the safety standards of the Montreal Police Service, and that they are not being modified to look like the cars that were stolen from the police,” Leger said.
Montgomerie police said there have been at least 30 illegal car modifications that have been recorded since March.
