“By putting recall information on vehicle registration notices, we want to proactively alert motorists to potential vehicle safety issues to help prevent crashes, injuries, and deaths,” Governor Mike DeWine said in the news release.
“We are able to use the Vehicle Recall Search Service to help inform Ohioans so they can address recalls for free,” Faisal Hasan, general manager of data at CARFAX, said in the release. “This partnership means more vehicle recalls will be remedied, and Ohio roadways will be safer for it.”
