Woman Receives Wrong Photo On Handicap ID

An Albuquerque woman who was just trying to comply with the new handicapped parking law made a startling discovery over the weekend. When she got her new parking plaque, there was another woman's picture where hers should be.

After Action 7 News contacted the Motor Vehicle Division, department officials contacted Askins. Officials indicated that not only was there a photo mix-up on the handicap permit, but Askins' personal information was now apparently attached to the wrong picture in Motor Vehicle Division records.  (more here)

We say:  Data management can be highly secure with proper personnel training and database configuration.  We tend to wonder if this contract went to the lowest bidder.
