Mesa County's main Motor Vehicle office has a new kiosk, helping staff track types of transactions and wait times.
Over the last month, 38 percent of the in-person transactions were simple license plate renewals that could have been completed online - for an additional $1.
Even citizens who wait until the last day of the month to renew can do so online. The receipt they receive will work as proof of registration until the tabs arrive in the mail. Tabs usually arrive within three days.
To renew plates online, go to www.colorado.gov/renewplates.
