Nine thousand Rhode Islanders are getting their vehicle registration stickers late.
The Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles recently switched vendors and the transition has delayed renewals for some vehicles.
The DMV reports that it is mostly the people with names beginning with the letters K & L. Also affected are public service vehicles and school buses.
DMV intends to process these renewals this week and mail out stickers in time for them to be received by July 31, said Carol Dwyer, Interim Administrator at the DMV in a statement.
Dwyer said the DMV has contacted local law enforcement to ensure that drivers who have not received their registrations yet are not punished for the error. Law enforcement will be urged to check the validity of any registration, as is their usual procedure, through the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System, before taking any enforcement action, said Dwyer.
Dwyer also reminded motorists that they can now log onto the DMV website and renew their registration anytime or renew at their local AAA office if they are members.

See now if that were the people we would be fined, no matter what the excuse. Why are these people not find for getting these out on time. Ahh the working class vs. the Government class (entitlement class)
