Chattanooga judge questions closure of center

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - A Chattanooga judge is questioning a decision by the state to close the county's only center that reinstates driver's licenses.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press (http://bit.ly/19fjTYZ) reports City Judge Russell Bean thinks the closure will lead to more unlicensed drivers.

The Department of Safety and Homeland Security said on Wednesday the Hamilton County Driver License Reinstatement Center would close next month because it didn't get enough use.

The newspaper said it registered 4,426 transactions through September.
