Local firm wants in on MVA project

November 06, 1997

A Hagerstown company has expressed interest in joining a state program to repossess the license plates of uninsured motorists, according to the Motor Vehicle Administration.

Two private firms - one in Baltimore County and one in Howard County - have been hired to find 200 sets of license plates that belong to drivers who have failed to pay fines imposed by the state for allowing their insurance to lapse.

Marjorie Murphy, a representative with the MVA, said Widmyer Driving School sent a letter to state officials expressing interest in the work. She said the letter will be kept on file and considered if the state expands its pilot program.

Hagerstown resident Joe Widmyer said many uninsured drivers take his driver improvement course.

"It's a natural for my current business. We deal with a number of people whose license has been suspended or revoked. They may actually be pulling into my lot," he said.

With offices in Hagerstown, Cumberland, Salisbury and Frederick, Widmyer said he is situated to seek out drivers in all parts of Maryland. He said he also employs two former state police officers who have the law enforcement experience the state needs for such a job.
