State officials say the daily positive percent rate among young adults for the coronavirus has climbed to a level that is “really striking” compared to the rest of the residents in New Jersey.
While acknowledging the long lines that have frustrated residents and lawmakers in North Jersey, New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Chief Administrator Sue Fulton sought to assure the public that the commission is effectively doing its job.
As the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) continues to work its way through a backlog caused by the agency’s COVID-19-related closure, Gov. Phil Murphy is reminding residents they may be able to “skip the trip” to renew licenses and registration.
Long lines, three-hour wait times, and stalled traffic on local roads and highways could all have been avoided if the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (NJMVC) had planned ahead, according to State Sens. Anthony M. Bucco (R-25) and Kristin Corrado (R-40).
New Jersey officials said the reopening of the Motor Vehicle Commission was designed to safeguard public health and safety, while at the same time bringing changes to improve efficiencies to commission operations.
