INDIANAPOLIS - Questions about overcharges at the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles are still raising concerns.
The Call 6 Investigators obtained videotaped depositions in which one official said the state was charging people too much for years.
The video gives a look into the lawsuit which accuses the agency of overcharging on services like vehicle registrations, duplicate titles and more.
Mathew Foley testified as a camera recorded his every word. He worked at the BMV from 2010 through January 2012 as the deputy director of fee code management.
He said he noticed something was wrong with the fees people were being charged at the branches and online for BMV services.
Foley was deposed on May 29. He said he thinks the prior administration had overcharged for some reason and those charges continued. He said he told many people about his concerns, but he believes budget concerns made his bosses deaf to his discovery.
"The reasons I was given were all budgetary," Foley said. "We would have to layoff off X percentage of staff. The BMV does not not make a profit. So that money would have to come from somewhere else."
Another top official in the hot seat was former BMV Commissioner Scott Waddell who worked at the agency until November 2013.
Waddell testified that no one did anything intentionally and he did not know who was at fault. He also testified that he could not recall if anyone was ever disciplined for the overcharges.
Attorney Irwin Levin believes the BMV owes Hoosiers millions of dollars in refunds. That lawsuit is pending, but he did win a previous case against the BMV in which people paid too much for driver’s licenses.
