More than 800 Massachusetts drivers have had their licenses suspended amid the latest Registry of Motor Vehicles probe in the wake of yet another scandal involving the registry..
More than 800 drivers’ licenses have been suspended this week as the result of clearing up a backlog at the Registry of Motor Vehicles’ Quincy-based Merit Ratings Board.
Today Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack announced that Registry of Motor Vehicles has sanctioned drivers who have slipped through the cracks.
Earlier this week, the state found a considerable backlog of out-of-state driver notifications at the Merit Rating Board administrative office.
Granted, some props appear to perhaps be in order for so expeditiously processing over 800 license suspensions during a holiday-foreshortened week.
At the same time, however, it is only fair to conversely wonder why the backlog had grown so large given that so many license suspensions could be processed during a short workweek, especially given that the State Auditor torched the operations of the Merit Ratings Board a year and a half ago in a scathing audit and which it would appear that ratings board management all but ignored.
