Description

From the contest questionnaire: " The series expanded on its initial findings of 2001 - that a well-organized black market was providing illegal immigrants with genuine New Jersey driver's licenses, posing ominous questions of security, legal status and untrained driving - to prove the criminality went right to the heart of the Division of Motor Vehicles, one state agency that touches almost all New Jersey residents." The findings are that DMV employees take bribes; the agency does not prevent criminals from requesting duplicates of existing driver's licenses; and DMV's work environment, low pay and antiquated computer system have allowed for corruption to flourish.
