WEST WARWICKâ€” In the month of June alone, Rhode Islanders in total spent 2.4 years waiting in line at the Rhode Island Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), according to gubernatorial candidate Ken Block. At a press conference at the DMV Headquarters in Cranston, Block discussed ways he will to improve the customer experience, wait times and the out-dated computer system that is costing the state millions for maintenance and repairs if elected.
â€śWe asked people exiting the DMV how long they were there and it was a consistent 2-3 hours,â€ť Block said, â€śAs Governor, I will get to the bottom of what the problem is and if necessary, pull the plug on the current DMV computer program contract.â€ť
Representative Patricia Morgan of District 26 (Coventry, West Warwick, Warwick) and Senator Nick Kettle of District 21 (Coventry, Scituate, West Greenwich) were among the state officials at the press conference who are in full support of Block as Governor.
