Crackdown on Fraudulent Temp Tags
Fraudulent temp tags are a headache for every reputable dealer in Texas.
Fraudulent temp tags are a headache for every reputable dealer in Texas. And, as you will see in this story dealers who misuse those tags risk license revocation and heavy fines. Remember, the dealer is responsible for all temporary tags printed under their P number.
The best way to protect yourself is to use vehicle specific temporary tags. If you use agent-specific tags, make sure you cancel these tags when they are not being used. These tags are easily counterfeited, and if the tag is not a vehicle specific tag or it has not been canceled, it can create a lot of unnecessary trouble for the dealer.
