Finally something maybe done about the most arrogant, inefficient department paid for by the taxpayers. It took long enough.
A friend bought a motorcycle and went to the Waterbury branch yesterday, I needed something at Docs right down the street so I went with him.
What a laugh and how disgusting 20 people standing in line to pick up a form, I remember when the forms were right by the front door, you grabbed one filled it out and got in line, if it was wrong they told you to re-do it or you could get it checked before you got in line, but you didn't have to stand in line to get 1 total waste of money. Why can't you download and print the form you want at home than bring it in? Because they still use CARBON paper! And the speed in which they move, wow the last glacier in CT moved faster than these people.
I spoke with a guy who said he went to New Britain to register one of those reverse trikes you know the ones with 2 wheels in the front and 1 in the rear and New Britain said it wasn't on it's approved to register list. He called the dealer who told him to take it to Waterbury they've already registered over 70. Wow not approved for CT in New Britain but approved for CT in Waterbury, and you'd think both offices would be linked to the same data base. Moronic management, closing this useless dept a long time over due.
This is the most intelligent thing I've heard come out of Hartford probably since the last glacier left CT.
State police take over licensing and registration DPW or DEP (I can't remember which alphabet soup I heard) handles inspections and consumer protection handles problems with and licensing repair shops and dealers. They even talked about putting kiosks in different malls for normal license and registration renewals.
It all sounds good to me. I mean the savings alone in manpower and keeping the buildings running will be great. I'm sure run efficiently you wouldn't need 1/2 the people.
