New Hampshire plans to suspend the licenses of nearly 4,000 drivers following a deadly crash that killed seven motorcyclists in June.
In a news conference, Gov. Chris Sununu said the review of the Division of Motor Vehicles led to DMV officials to catch up on the states backlog of unprocessed cancellations for commercials driver’s licenses.
“We left no stone unturned. We accounted for every file and every notification,” Sununu said of the review. “It’s our job as public officials to go through these reviews to ensure that the systems we have in place across the state truly work for the people that we represent.”
Sununu said more than 3,000 drivers from New Hampshire and other states will have their licenses suspended.
“What we have learned through the process allows us to both challenge and assist other states as they hopefully undergo the same exercise,” Sununu said.
