    Hi all,

    Thought you might be interested in this link:

    Drivers License And Privacy Act - Check your driver's license information on-line.

    Now you can see anyones driver's license on the internet, including your own!

    It asks for U.S. info, but it also works for Canadian, English, Australian and New Zealand licenses as well.

    I just searched for mine and it was there, photo and all.

    This is really scary. I removed mine and I suggest you all do the same.

    Go to the website and check it out.

    Just enter your name and in the box marked CITY put your country, leave 'Select a State' blank and see if yours is on file.

    After your license comes on the screen, click the box marked "Please Remove".

    Thanks Franklin, I don't monkey around when it comes to protecting my privacy. I had them remove mine immediately.

    Whenever I see things like this I never fully trust them, I wonder if there is some hidden agenda and reason why they want me to enter my info. Seems more like some kind of scam to me than anything else..

    Cute joke, but, not a real privacy or security issue. Thanks for playing everyone. ;)
