COVER STORY

COVID-weary jurisdictions grapple with a secondary pandemic: dangerous driving

Thanks to social distancing and stay-at-home orders in cities across the globe, motorists stayed at home, airplanes idled in hangars and busy factories went dark. Although the economy floundered, the environment flourished. Traffic safety advocates had reason to be just as optimistic as environmentalists. If declines in automobile traffic could produce a decrease in air pollution, they reasoned, they surely would facilitate a decrease in fatal car crashes, too. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

FEATURE STORY

Update to S2S Verification Service allows DMVs to share and access current driver history records

Since the first state joined the State-to-State (S2S) Verification Service in August 2015, almost two-thirds of states in the U.S. have implemented the system and taken advantage of its benefits. Similar to the Commercial Driver’s License Information System (CDLIS), S2S is a system that allows jurisdictions to check if a driver’s license applicant already holds a driver’s license or ID in another state. Recently, the S2S Service has been enhanced by updating it to include driver history records (DHR).

INDUSTRY INSIGHT

The relationship between the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) and FAST Enterprises began in 2018, when modernization was needed in driver services to meet the REAL ID legislation deadline. While the system needed to launch on an extreme time crunch, FAST rose to the challenge and met the deadline. Later, when Minnesota mandated an update to its vehicle services program, FAST was selected.
