WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut’s Department of Motor Vehicles will temporarily stop forwarding to police lists of motorists whose vehicle registrations have been suspended due to a lack of insurance.

DMV Commissioner Andres Ayala Jr. said Thursday that the holdup will give his agency time to sift through a backlog that’s developed and determine which motorists have insurance and which don’t.

Ayala apologized to drivers whose registrations have been wrongly suspended. The problem stems from the recent upgrade of DMV’s computer system and it affected people who recently changed their insurance company.

It’s unclear how many registrations were wrongly suspended.

Ayala promised that any fines incurred between Aug. 18 and Jan. 9 due to DMV’s error will be reimbursed. A website has been created to request refunds.
