Vehicle registration system reportedly in good working order
The national vehicle registration system is reportedly in working order after weeks of malfunctions. A deputy to the transport minister said the parties involved in the problem had held an all-night crisis meeting and that all stations were now processing applications successfully. Nonetheless, officials at the stations say the system remains slower than the original one. The Transport Ministry claims the most recent problems were caused not by the faultiness of the new system itself but by overloaded servers at the Police Presidium, which handle the Schengen Information System. The failing system has caused major problems for drivers since it was launched on July 9. Prime Minister Nečas has given Transport Minister Pavel Dobeš until Friday to resolve the problem or else resign.
