Us Goverment Putting Drivers Licenses On The Web

Tue Jun 13, 2006 11:57 am

Well the US goverment has found a new way to take away your privacy rights.

As part of the Motor Vehicle Operator License Identification Act (MOLIA - enacted on July 9, 2005), all US states are required to digitally store a copy of every valid driver's license. License data must be made retrievable by The National Motor Vehicle License Bureau in order to form a consolidated and centralized database of U.S. driver's licenses. On August 3rd, 2005 Congress enacted an amendment to the Freedom of Information Act, providing public access to motor vehicle driver's information in an electronic format.
ates on the net. So you can now look up the drivers license of anybody in the US with a new compliant license.

The feds claim that this will allow people buisnesses to compare licenses they are prestented with, to the electronic image of it on line to determine if it is real or has been tampered with.

Frankly I think it will destroy the value of a license as a form of ID.

Thank god there is an opt out if you go to the website and look yourself up.

This may be in violation of may privacy laws on the Federal and State level, mainly to protect for example, celeberties, stalkers, nasty ex-husbands and so on. Some may be able to use secured web access, much like police do today to check licenses.

Hate to break it to you, but in most states, your driver license IS public information. Which means anyone can look at the info on it, and if that state has a database, look at your picture. Minnesota has one, and all you need to due is go to the DMV and request a PIN to get into the website. I don't see this as a big deal. So you'll know my address and the fact I'm an organ donor.
