Va. DMV drops toll-free service

By Washington Post editors

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles has dropped its toll-free customer service number to save money.

The DMV says the toll-free number – 866-368-5463 -- has been replaced with 804-497-7100, effective Friday.

The change doesn't affect the toll-free number for deaf or hard-of-hearing customers who connect with the teletypewriter device. The toll-free number for DMV's automated phone service also is available.

Motor Vehicles Commissioner Rick Holcomb says dropping the toll-free customer service number will save about $500,000. The state was paying 3 cents per minute for calls to the number.

Taxes continue to climb, but services continue to decline.

Perhaps they should also fire a few of the people that answer the phone?
