SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drivers waiting in line outside the Registry of Motor Vehicles in Springfield, Thursday morning, didn’t appreciate waiting under the hot sun. However, the RMV opened at 10:00 a.m. with a line forming during much of the first hour.
Jerry Shields had come from Monson thinking the RMV opened at 9:00 a.m., as it does the rest of the week. “I was like expecting it’s usually open at 9:00 a.m., but today it’s opened at 10:00 a.m. So I had to wait on top of being before 9:00 a.m.still waiting for something inside,” Shields said.
The line to the RMV had thinned considerably within 45 minutes of Thursday’s 10:00 a.m. opening. The temperature was a humid 82 degrees when the RMV opened.
