Front Porch: Spring 2014

Are other urbanites flocking westward in search of reduced SOS stress? "We have no way of knowing that," says a spokesman at the Michigan Department of State. "We don't track that." The manager of the Chelsea branch, whose name tag identified her as J. Long-Clark, says releasing data on where her customers come from would be a privacy violation.

How had the tipster friend discovered the convenience of the Chelsea branch? He'd lived in Grass Lake for many years, and the Chelsea branch was closest to him. After he moved to Ann Arbor, he went to the Maple Village office to renew his driver's license.

"I got there very early and was still something like number thirty-five," he recalls. "I thought 'what the hell,' got in the car, drove to Chelsea, and was number three, which pretty much meant that my number was announced about the time my butt hit the seat in the waiting area. I spent a little on gas but more than made up for it in time. I figure I probably saved over an hour."
