Verizon Outage Shuts Down Wilmington RMV on Monday

The town's Registry of Motor Vehicles is closed to begin the week.

Planning a trip to the ? Then you'd better make plans for another day.

According to the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, a Verizon outage will cause the RMV to be closed throughout the day Monday.

"Lawrence, Wilmington branches are closed for the day due to Verizon outage," MassDOT tweeted earlier today. "We apologize for the inconvenience."

The Wilmington branch, located on Middlesex Ave., was originally slated to open on Monday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. If services are up and running by Tuesday, the RMV will be back in business from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

For updates on the RMV's hours and to see if the location will be open on Tuesday, call (617) 351-4500 or visit the MassDOT website.

In this day and age how does the RMV not have a contingency plan for an outage like this? Well, I guess if they did have a plan our license and registration fees would be higher than they are now.

Correct. This is a rare occurrence that doesn't merit having an emergency plan. Simply visit another RMV branch that isn't affected by the outage.

Not only was the RMV affected I was shopping a Mkt Bskt, and all of the debit/credit card machines were down, they however did have a contingency plan.
