DMV Launches Spanish Language Version of Website Language barriers at the Department of Motor Vehicles are coming down. The DMV has launched a Spanish version of its website.
It's already a big hit, receiving more than 10,000 visits a month. The website allows those who speak only Spanish to obtain information and handle vehicle and driver's license renewals online.
The DMV becomes one of the first state agencies to offer a Spanish laguage version of its website.
You don't even have to speak English to vote here anymore.
I think the term barrier here followed by the fact the government had to change is telling.
Why?? Aren't we english speaking americans??
Gee, this really makes me feel safe driving on the road with people who cannot even read our street signs and the California DMV is licensing them.
Stupidity runs rampant among California politicians.
That equals more than 10,000 (not necessarily unique) additional views of Gray Davis' face. His image must appear on all state websites under a design created by the former eGovernment department, formerly headed by Davis-appointee Arun Baheti, who is famous for accepting the $25,000 Oracle check in a shady bar for Davis.
Baheti said that people visiting CA government webpages all wanted to know how to find the governor's webpage, so he used Davis' 1"x2" image for a link, but received criticism that such a large picture amounted to excessive free advertising. Baheti was later fired/resigned for his role in the Oracle "bribe Davis for a $95 million state contract" scandal.
The image looks similar to this one:
Why? Did we give California to Mexico?
