ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — This column is only as good as you loyal Journal readers who call, email and write your traffic concerns in so our area experts can explain the methods to the seeming madness or address what’s not working. And so today, in honor of all of you, is a speed round of questions and answers to try to get as many into print and online as possible.
WHY DID MVD REJECT MY SOCIAL SECURITY CARD?
Before the holiday some reports came in of drivers trying to renew their licenses and being turned away by clerks who said the rules had changed and they no longer accepted Social Security cards as documentation for a Real ID.
Charlie Moore,who handles information for the state Taxation and Revenue Department, says “there was a problem because of some miscommunication on our end, but nothing actually has changed. The ‘not for identification purposes’ printed on some older SS cards was the source of the problem. Those are still fine for meeting the ID number requirement – column 2 on the list of acceptable documents.”
