$24K fine, de-certification for Vancouver shop that made 40 invalid vehicle inspections

A Vancouver business has lost its certification to inspect vehicles and is facing nearly $24,000 in fines.

Vancouver police say a joint investigation with the Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement branch found that the Budget Brake and Muffler operator at 245 East Second Avenue had been doing the inspections without an authorized inspector.

Police say the investigation determined that 40 vehicles had been inspected since the facility’s authorized inspector had stopped working there about a year ago.

Police say 17 of the 40 vehicles were commercial vehicles, including 16 limousines and one tow truck.
