The Department of Transportation may establish a program of reviewing department records and odometer disclosure statements to determine vehicles that may have incorrect odometer disclosures or on which the odometer may have been altered. The program may include any procedures the department determines appropriate including, but not limited to, the comparison of odometer disclosures for individual vehicles with statistical information on statistically average mileage for vehicles within a certain period of time.
If the department determines under this section that it is likely that a vehicle or vehicles have incorrect odometer disclosures or have odometers that have been illegally altered, the department may do any of the following:
Report the findings of the department to the owners or purchasers of the vehicles.
Report the findings of the department to enforcement officials charged with enforcing laws relating to odometers, including, but not limited to, police officials, district attorneys or the Attorney General’s office. [1985 c.251 §9; 1991 c.873 §18]
