Liz says she has gone into the DMV twice to return three other parking placards.
“Because if she’s deceased, she no longer needs them,” Liz said.
The DMV says you are required to return placards within 60-days of a death. They also say she should have been asked to fill out a form documenting the death.READ MORE: 44 Structures Now Destroyed As Dixie Fire Grows To 240,795 Acres
Liz says that did not happen.
“They say, ‘Oh, thank you,’ took it, and that was that,” Liz said.
The DMV wouldn’t call it a mistake, but said: “procedures may not have been followed which prevented the record from being updated.”MORE NEWS: Search Continues For Woman Missing Following Boating Accident
