Finally. Some common sense.

NYC has a complex series of points and all states should follow suit.

That makes two good decisions for the NY court of appeals… See: http://www.newsday.com/news/local/state/ny-stgay0707,0,5118918,print.story?coll=ny-top-headlines

"two numbers to get two licenses -- one for insurance and the other for traffic tickets."

Why didn't I think of that?

What are the chances of this catching on in other states? We can always hope.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Since 9/11, the DMV here in Virginia requires proof of American citizenship or legal immigration-status. But there is one glitch: licenses issued prior to 9/11 are issued for a five-year term, renewable online for a second five-year term, although that second provision might be different for those holding visas.

How in the world can they claim their constitutional rights are being violated while at the same time saying they are here illegally?????

Don,
I don't know. Besides, driving is a privilege, not a right.

Amen! Here in the Ohio BMV, one has to give two forms of ID when getting a license. A Soc. Sec. card + birth certificate are accepted forms. They don't take things like bills with an address or any other sort of non-verifiable ID.

I don't see how an illegal can get a licsense under those conditions.

Great! This should have been happening from the beginning!

Lone Pony,
Hi! Long time.

I've heard that other states have similar measures. Every state should!

Brooke,
I don't see how an illegal can get a licsense under those conditions.

Counterfeits and bribes, I guess. But those cases would be much fewer than the blanketing issue of licenses to any who show up at DMV.

Beak,
We have a point system here in Virginia too. But powerhouse attorneys know how to work the system for offenders.

David,
Thank you for the question of the week you've just posted. I didn't know about that experiment!

Mustang,
Common sense--a precious commodity!

Old Soldier,
Yes, two court rulings. I wonder if they'll stand.

Mike's America,
The various scams using driver's licenses probably go beyond the one cited here.

Now if they could manage to require an ability to actually drive...

Anonymous,
Not much chance of either the requirement or the ability.
