Nearly 300,000 carte gris waiting on government website

MidiLibre/Scoop, Mar 28

Nearly 300 000 carte gris cards have been held up on the government website since November 1, 2017.

Five months after the new rule which makes it obligatory to register the cards via the website, there is now a serious backlog.

BFMTV revealed that nearly 300,000 applications are currently behind schedule.

The obtaining of a driver’s license has also proved to be riddled with problems, from bugs, to the sites being down, to inexplicable delays of several months.
