    You didn't have pepper spray?
    I do understand the problems faced at crowded DMV's, so I usually travel to a small nearby town to get my tags...sometimes, no line!

    I dont go to the DMV. I just do it all online.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    All too familiar story, I feel your pain.

    I live just down the steet from our local DMV, Probation Office, WV Dept. of Transportation and a telemarketing outfit ALL located in the same building. Plus there are bus stops on either side of the avenue where just about all manner of humanity waits. We are not in the downtown area either, it's smack dab inside of a residential area.

    The building has the classic no guns sign posted, the one with the black shillouette red circle and slash across, so nobody can "legally" bring in a concealed handgun, but I'd bet my last dollar there are guns in the place.

    I would move.
    I would think the state would have it set up like Mi.
    You don 't have to get the car inspected, but you can get your plates/tags by mail, or even online.
    In the future I would think heavily on the utilization of the buddy system

    we don't have trouble at the DMV sense they moved to their new location. They are now well organized and the employees have a better attitude. If you were to get a letter to the right people the police might weed out some of the scum bags who are hanging around bothering the people trying to get their tags.

    AWESOME quote!!!

    Yeah, those guys are everywhere around here (Raleigh - NC State) but it's best when there are other people around. It's when I'm alone when I get worried.

    Open the trunk and grab the tire iron - in case one of the lug nuts comes loose.

    Wow!

    It's stories like this that remind me how happy I am to have retired back to SWVA.

    1) We can carry at DMV.

    2) Our local DMV is very customer oriented. I'm usual in & out in under 15 minutes -- just avoid Monday mornings and the first & last couple days of the month. When my son moved back from a number of years living in europe, they walk him through a very complicated process, with great insight, knowledge, and patiences.

    OTOH, it does bring back memories of living in the Fort Mead area of MD.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.
