In a crackdown on the use of illegal spare parts for cars, the police's Etgar unit started a program of inspections of car garages on Sunday. Officers began the initiative, called "Operation Genesis," with visits to 48 garages in Tel Aviv, all of which were found to be breaking the law with their management of spare parts. Fully half of the garages visited lacked municipal business licenses. The operation will include 300 garages across Israel and is being carried out with the Association of Garages and the Transport Ministry. A few months ago Etgar was set up for the second time to fight car crime after being closed down in 2003. It was founded in 1998.
