Statewide computer virus causes long lines at Motor Vehicle agency in Edison

Residents headed to the Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) in Edison Wednesday and Thursday found themselves waiting in long lines. A spokesperson for the MVC says there are 45 motor vehicle agencies affected by a statewide computer virus.

Many of the residents are frustrated with the long lines. Some people were turned away at the Motor Vehicle agency in South Plainfield and sent to Edison because the computers were not working at all.

MVC officials say they are working on correcting the problem. They say the computer virus is statewide and affects all state agencies, not just the MVC.
