Rattling off bids in a singsong chant, auctioneer Tom Henline moved along a line of impounded vehicles yesterday followed by a swarm of bidders, each clutching a small scrap of paper imprinted with a number. "Show me the number! Show me the number!" he said after each successful bid as Pied Piper-like he led the buyers to the next car for sale near the Pulaski Highway impound lot. With Henline, a West Virginian, doing the rapid-fire hawking, Baltimore officials offered a record number of cars, minivans, and trucks, more than 900, in two auctions.

Thousands and thousands of motorists will be paying millions and millions of dollars in highway tolls to get to Grandma's house in time for Thanksgiving, but Eric Gregory is no longer one of them. He sold his car a while ago. He's out of the driving-and-toll-paying life. And he's out of the driving-and-toll-paying life because he stopped paying his tolls. I'll explain in a minute, but before I do, a disclosure: I know about Gregory's story only because he contacted me for help.

Gov. Martin O'Malley thinks that if you don't pay taxes, you shouldn't get an auto license ( "Driver's licenses, vehicle registrations may be denied over owed taxes," Feb. 2). Result: many drivers without licenses, unregulated by the Motor Vehicle Administration and without liability insurance. Maybe there's a good reason why Maryland would be one of the few states to approve such a law. Jim Astrachan, Baltimore

Branch offices of the state Motor Vehicle Administration could not complete some transactions for about an hour yesterday morning because a glitch kept them from connecting with the agency's mainframe computer, officials said. The glitch was the result of a software update over the weekend and was discovered when branch offices opened at 8:30 a.m. yesterday. The problem was fixed and the system was back up by 9:35. MVA offices were shut down for a day in August when the agency's computers crashed because of a computer virus.
