BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — At the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles center on Hanover Street in downtown Boston, those waiting in the line—which stretched around the block to Congress Street—were standing several feet from one another.
John, from the South End, told WBZ NewsRadio's James Rojas he had been in line since 6 a.m. The doors didn't open until 9 a.m.
"They're doing a good job," he said. "They remind everybody every five minutes or so to be six feet apart, social distancing. It's pretty good, I think."
"I'm very, very glad about it, to avoid contagion," said another woman who had been waiting in the line a long time.
Not everyone was a fan, including Jonathan from Dorchester.
"I understand why they do it, but it seems a little bit extreme," he said. "It's for the best, I guess."
Some in line said they were going straight home after their RMV business was finished, though others said they had other things to take care of before going back into isolation.
