Banned car dealer hit with maximum fine

An Auckland man who continued to sell vehicles despite being banned as a trader has been fined $50,000.

Brett Collins had been found guilty of selling eight vehicles when he shouldn't have been.

It was the sixth time he'd been fined for unlawful vehicle trading, so was fined the maximum amount.

His previous convictions came between 2001 and 2004.
