TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Shawnee County residents will be able to get in line to renew vehicle tags and titles from home.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/15gKrDP ) that the new system begins Monday.
Shawnee County Treasurer Larry Mah says the online and mobile queue allows customers to choose a license renewal location, then issues a ticket number and asks the customer to enter a cellphone number, so the system can send a text when the number is 20 minutes out. Mah says the electronic queue won't stop the lines from forming, but he hopes the measures at least spread the wait times out.
The new system is a major change from less than a year ago, when people lined up outside the offices as early as 4 a.m.
