Dodgy car repairers in the firing line with NSW government crackdown to target insurers | dailytelegraph.com.au

INSURANCE company employees and smash repairers who deceive customers will face potential prison terms and hefty new fines under sweeping reforms to the industry, following claims that shonky repair work was jeopardising motorists’ safety.

There will also be new penalties, including hefty fines and jail terms for insurance company employees or repairers that breach the mandatory industry code — including those that “unethically” steer customers towards preferred smash yards.

“This is an unacceptable business practice which undermines independent repairer businesses and deprives consumers of choice,” Fair Trading Minister Matthew Mason-Cox said.
