Glitch in NC vehicle inspection system causes delays over the weekend



NORTH CAROLINA - A glitch in North Carolina's vehicle inspection system meant drivers across the state had long waits for their license tags over the past week.

State officials said there were some problems when they switched to a new communication system between mechanic shops and the DMV in Raleigh.

Several stations said they have had trouble sending data to Raleigh and that has caused major delays.

"It was pretty frustrating for the inspectors because what normally happens really fast had to be manually typed in," said Andy Tucker.

The DMV switched from a dial-up system to a web-based program.
