New DC Web site for Consumer Protection Will Go Live Monday

Seems like a step in the right direction!  Do you guys think the four key areas “home improvement contractors, towing companies, auto repair shops, and used car lots” are the areas where consumer protection should be focused?  What do you think of the site?

From an email:

“On Monday, we are launching a new Website – – and really pushing consumer protection in four key areas – home improvement contractors, towing companies, auto repair shops and used car lots. We’ve shut down a ton of illegal used car lots in the past three months and are adding new areas to clean up.  It’ll have a new data feeds, we’ll post all the bad actors, it has a Twitter aggregator, Facebook page, blogger room with special videos, badges, podcasts and other goodies all on .gov server. A ton of firsts for there. Would love to hear some input and see what you and your readers think.
We are collecting stories, tips, complaints to feature and posted people’s stories in video form on the site, You Tube, Facebook, etc. The complaints we’ll research and see if we can help in anyway. If not, we want other people to share their stories and lessons learned, rather than just posting a top 10 “do not do this.””
