DMV error hits some D.C. residents
An undetermined number of District residents stood in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles this week after mistakenly receiving mailed notices that their car and truck registrations had been suspended.
The notices warned of a big fine if they continued to drive, saying the DMV had determined their insurance information was incomplete.
Apparently this was all the fault of some sort of computer glitch. On Wednesday, the DMV issued a statement explaining that.
"Suspension notices were sent in error to some District residents," the statement said. "DMV is aware and is working closely with the Office of the Chief Technology Officer to remedy this issue. Additionally, the DMV will immediately send correction letters to those residents who received suspension notices in error."
