Local kiosk least-used in state

The self-service vehicle registration kiosk in Hagerstown was the least-used of 11 in Maryland last year, according to the Motor Vehicle Administration.

The number of 1999 transactions at each machine, as provided by the MVA, were:

- Hagerstown, Washington County: 1,196

- Salisbury, Wicomico County: 1,331

- Glen Burnie, Anne Arundel County: 2,135

- Silver Spring, Montgomery County: 2,155

- Prince Frederick, Calvert County: 2,288

- Laurel, Prince George's County: 3,262

- Westminster, Carroll County: 5,001

- Greenbelt, Prince George's County: 5,136


- Owings Mills, Baltimore County: 5,484

- Columbia, Howard County: 6,803

- Towson, Baltimore County: 10,356.

The Hagerstown kiosk will be removed Oct. 3, followed by the ones in Prince Frederick Oct. 4, Laurel Oct. 5, Silver Spring Oct. 6 and Glen Burnie Oct. 10.

The kiosks at the six other locations will be improved.

The Salisbury machine had been at a shopping center until last month, when it was moved to an MVA office.
