If you have to renew your license, you should try to get it done this week.

Starting Monday, long lines are expected in at Michigan Secretary of State offices as driver responsibility fees are officially eliminated.

Gov. Rick Snyder signed a bill in March that ended the driver responsibility fee program and forgave almost $650 million in debt owed by nearly 350,000 drivers.

Drivers who owed too much under the previous law were stripped of their licenses. They will be eligible to apply for reinstatement beginning Oct. 1. Anyone who applies between Monday and Dec. 31 can avoid having to pay the $125 reinstatement fee.

In anticipation of long lines, the Secretary of State's office has hired more clerks to "address the expected increase in customer volume," Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said in a statement.

During this incident, Officer Crawford was being verbally assaulted but was able to maintain his composure, remain calm and exhibit true professionalism. Congratulations Officer Crawford on receiving this prestigious award for your efforts.  Keep up the great work!
