(1) In addition to any other remedies provided by law, the Department of Transportation may petition the circuit court to enjoin a person from acting as a vehicle dealer in violation of the Oregon Vehicle Code or any rule adopted by the department.

(2) A single act in violation of the provisions of the Oregon Vehicle Code or of any rules adopted by the department relating to vehicle dealers shall be sufficient ground for the court to issue the injunction.

(3) In addition to issuing an injunction, the court may assess a penalty not to exceed $15,000 if the department proves by a preponderance of the evidence that a person is acting as a vehicle dealer without possessing a vehicle dealer certificate.
