1,300 in Md. may drive with bad licenses

By Associated Press

The head of Maryland’s Motor Vehicle Administration says more than 1,300 residents may be driving on licenses that could be suspended or revoked.

MVA officials reviewed more than 10,000 licenses with eight or more violation points after a state audit revealed problems with oversight at the administration, The Washington Examiner reports.

MVA Administrator John Kuo says more than 1,300 cases drew potential red flags and are being reviewed manually. He told lawmakers Tuesday that automated software that translates data from courts into points on people’s licenses was responsible for the failure to notice the problem.

Kuo says he has addressed other issues uncovered by the audit, including a conclusion that MVA electronic databases left drivers’ personal information vulnerable to theft.
