Clean machines between each use

Last month I had the unpleasant experience of renewing my driver’s license at the Lynnwood location.

To take the eye exam, one has to look through a machine with one’s forehead pressed against it. Does this machine ever get sanitized? What a great way to spread disease.

Taxpayers in this state support health departments who encourage us to get flu shots, cough into our elbows, stay home when sick in order to not spread germs, then we are forced to use totally unsanitary machines to renew our licenses. At $45 per renewal, the agency should be able to supply sanitary wipes at least for the customer to wipe the machine.
