Renewing DL Could Get Easier

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety is planning an alternative for residents to renew their driver's licenses.

As early as December, residents in some areas may be able to renew licenses at several kiosks, that would operate similar to an automated teller machine.

Steve Simpson, the state's commissioner of public safety, said Wednesday he plans to place a system of kiosks throughout the state.

He hopes to have six to eight kiosk pilot projects set up by the end of the year or early next year.

People are now eligible to get their license renewed online every other four-year period.

    These women act that way because they have too much job security. It is nearly impossible to fire government employees. There is absolutely no excuse for the way they talk to people in that office. It should not matter how rude the public is. Of course the public is rude, but they have no excuse for not remaining professional. To clarify, they have never been rude to me, but I have been in the office and witnessed how they treat others. It is shameful. Ask around. See how many people in town agree. We can argue this all day long but they wouldn't have a job long in a private office.

    John, maybe that's how people feel about you, too.

    I never had a problem with the staff at the DL office. Some of you should consider the number of rude people they encounter daily before being judgmental. People can take only so much abuse. Why not try being patient at the DL bureau, at Wal-Mart, and the grocery store? You might be surprised what you get back. I had to wait a while at the pharmacy recently because some customers were not prepared. I decided to be patient. The cashier thanked me. It meant something to her. The whole world doesn't revolve around you and your problems, or me and mine.

    John you really should have to work there before you make statements like that,I did for 4 years!!I never knew how mean the public can be until I went to work at the MHP.People want what they want and when they want it.I was cussed,had things thrown at me,and was even threatned with weapons.All for very little pay.Would you let someone do that to your wife,mother,or you would not!!!Overall I enjoyed my job,but getting jumped on everyday got old.Remember those ladies are someones mother,daughter,and wife treat them like you would like the women in your life to be treated!!

    Anything is better than having to deal with those sociopathic women at the DMV office.
