Va. DMV still unable to process licenses

Virginia's governmental computer problems aren't fixed just yet.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says it won't be able to process driver's licenses and identification cards Monday. The agency is one of 26 affected by a major crash of the state's problem-plagued centralized computers last week.

The Virginia Information Technologies Agency says all but about three agencies' systems have been restored. Work continues on the remaining systems.

The DMV says Virginians whose ID cards or driver's licenses expired between last Wednesday and Monday must renew in person once service is restored.

They have to bring a birth certificate, passport, or other document confirming citizenship or legal residency.

It's nice that state police are not issuing tickets, but what about localities? What about other states? What about the TSA? How are you supposed to get through airport security with an expired license?

This is an outrage that we are paying billions of dollars to a company that has utterly failed to do its job.
