A lot of commercial car wash owners are worried that their business will soon be out of business.
It could be a bit of a blow to their bottom line.
In recent years, car wash operators have been getting hammered by the federal government, who has been cracking down on car wash industry businesses.
And while it’s been happening for a while now, the federal crackdown has been more severe than the states, according to a report from the Car Wash Association of America.
The federal government is making it easier to fines people who use cars as a business.
They’re now targeting businesses that don’t have the proper permits to operate.
“I would imagine it’s a pretty steep penalty, but I don’t know,” said Mike Tumlin, owner of the local car wash at The Car Wash in Tacoma, Washington.
He said the penalties are getting worse, not better, for car wash businesses that are still not properly licensed.
We’ve had the federal fines on this for a long time.
They just aren’t going down,” he said.
Some states have passed new rules in recent years that require car wash licenses to be renewed every year, so owners have to keep renewing their licenses.
But that’s no longer an option for some of the smaller car wash companies.
Car wash operators in Alaska and Utah have already been fined $300,000 each for operating without a car wash license, according a report by the Alaska Railroad Commission.
That means the owners of car wash stations and car wash operations in Nevada, Washington and Arizona have already spent at least $500,000 to renew their carshafts, and the owners in California have already paid at least another $200,000 for their cars.
With the federal penalties, the number of businesses that were impacted is expected to increase.
The federal government has been sending more and more enforcement agents to the states to enforce their new regulations.
But that could be just the start of it.
As the federal sanctions continue to grow, there’s a possibility that the penalties could change in the future.
The states are going to have to change their regulations, and some of those regulations could become even more stringent.
Many of the states’ car wash regulations have already changed over time, so there’s always the chance that the new rules could be more restrictive.
There is a possibility of a bigger federal crackdown coming down the pike, though. “
You could lose your business,” said Car Wash association executive director Steve Hauschka.

When it comes to car wash inspections, federal officials are trying to take things to the next level.
Officials are looking at what happens if you’re on the list of people who don’t get their car washed, and if you have a car that’s not inspected.
And then they’re looking at the size of that car wash business.
If you have multiple car wash facilities in a single area, they could be fined.
If there’s not enough inspectors, they might even be asked to remove people from the list.
If they are asked to do that, they’re going to get a bigger fine, which could put more pressure on the car wash to keep up.
These new federal regulations are expected to impact about 300,000 commercial car washes, according the Carwash Association of American.
Those penalties could be even more severe, with some states considering stiffer penalties for car owners who don and do not have a commercial car washing license.
For now, however, there are car wash people who think the federal regulations will make things better for them.
“If it’s going to happen to you, it’s not going to be too bad, because the feds are going after your business, and they’re not going after mine,” said Tumlins owner.
“So I’d say it’s pretty safe.
And I think it’s fair to say we’ve got a lot of experience under our belt with this.”
