Malloy threatens legal action against Connecticut auto club

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is threatening possible legal action if one of two regional automobile clubs in Connecticut follows through with its plans to stop providing driver licensing services to non-members.

The Democratic governor said in a letter Monday that AAA Northeast has a contract in place with the Department of Motor Vehicles and is obligated to provide services to the general public. AAA Northeast has offered the service at its eight offices in Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield counties.

AAA Northeast spokeswoman Fran Mayko says the club’s lawyers will have to review Malloy’s comments.

She says AAA Northeast has seen an influx of non-member transactions, which adversely affects service to its members.

The general public can still get licensing services at AAA Allied offices in other counties.
