Drivers Angered By Computer Crash at Ohio Motor Vehicles Agency

CLEVELAND (AP) - The Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles says it's hoping to have its computer issues resolved today.

Over the weekend, frustrated drivers complained of long waits as deputy registrar's offices were slowed by sluggish computers.

Bureau spokesman Tom Hunter says the agency typically gets a rush of customers at the end of the month, and that coupled people trying to run errands before the holiday week could have caused the trouble.

Hunter says the B-M-V has experienced short slowdowns or crashes in the past, but nothing like what happened over the weekend. He says the agency brought in technicians to fix and upgrade the system, which should be back to normal today.
