Burroughs Adding Machine

Social justice, arts and politics, life in New York City

How do you save two million dollars?

Well, the Registry of Motor Vehicles has figured out a way: stop all those damn mailings. Beginning immediately, the RMV will cease mailing the helpful renewal letters for Driver’s Licenses and vehicle inspection that we’ve all become accustomed to. Not to mention reducing business hours at many branches.

I guess you’ve gotta do what you’ve gotta do. And I admire the RMV for being proactive. Now the burden of avoiding those inevitable late fees fall on the individual (I just paid the City of Boston several hundred dollars in late parking tickets–for parking on the wrong side of my street–but this is a longer, more whiny post for the future).

When are your licenses next up for renewal? Mark your calendars.
