HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles has notified one of two regional automobile clubs in Connecticut that it’s in default of a contract to provide driver licensing services to the general public.
Wednesday’s letter from DMV to AAA Northeast’s president demands the club immediately resume services to non-members. DMV Commissioner Michael Bzdyra says if the club doesn’t take action by Oct. 14, the state agency will “pursue all legal remedies,” including action to recover any damages.
AAA Northeast stopped serving non-members on Monday at its eight offices in Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield counties.
Bzdyra tells The Associated Press AAA Northeast didn’t provide DMV with a written 60-day notice to terminate the contract, calling it a “sudden, rash decision.”
AAA Northeast says it “reserves comment” on any legal notification.
