Kentucky Preparing for Increase of Vehicles Following Hurricanes

The Commonwealth could soon see an increase in flood damaged vehicles following the hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Department of Vehicle Regulation is preparing for an influx of title requests for vehicles that have been deemed a total loss due to natural disaster damage in state such as Florida and Texas, then brought to Kentucky to be “rebuilt.” John-Mark Hack, commissioner for the DVR, said title requests tripled in 2016 following Hurricane Matthew. Hack urges buyers to be cautious when purchasing vehicles sold at significantly reduced cost as there is great potential for damage to mechanical, electrical, and safety components.
