  • Ep. 10 - Modernizing the MVA

    21 MAG 2024 · Mobile ID, Customer Connect System, CAV testing, and a pilot testing out Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS) technology are just some ways Chrissy Nizer and her team are modernizing the Maryland DOT Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA). But these systems don’t run on their own, customer service is at the core of everything the MVA does. Needless to say, we were humbled with the opportunity to speak with Administrator Nizer and hear about how the MVA puts people first in new, safe, and innovative ways. On November 17th, 2023, Governor Moore's Work Zone Safety Work Group announced its final set of recommendations. View the complete recommendations​.​ Date of Recording: day, November 28, 2023
