The new DMV software implemented this past summer has been full of problems. Recently NBC Connecticut Troubleshooters Len Besthoff exposed some of those issues, such as numerous registrations suspended over insurance coverage issues . This was a software mistake and most of the suspended registrations did actually have proper insurance.
The problems eventually led to the resignation of the DMV Commissioner.
Today another software glitch raised some its ugly DMV head. A city of Hartford vehicle was involved in a traffic accident this morning. According to sources, as an HPD Officer was preparing the accident report, he ran the registration plate for the vehicle. The registration came back from DMV as suspended for unpaid taxes.
The only problem is that the City of Hartford is tax exempt and doesn't pay automobile taxes.
Wethersfield, we have a problem.
HPD and DMV worked together to identify the problem and Hartford's registrations for all City Vehicles apparently were quickly restored.
