States to Track Drivers Through Licenses

States to Track Drivers Through Licenses: "States to Track Drivers Through Licenses
A federal program promotes driving license technology that allows the tracking of motorists even when they are not driving.

Electronic monitoring of motorists will soon expand dramatically as states including Arizona, Michigan, Vermont and Washington begin to use radio frequency identification (RFID) chips in drivers' licenses. These electronic chips broadcast the identity of any card holder to any chip-reading sensor within a minimum of thirty feet. The US Department of Homeland Security is promoting the tracking projects as part of its Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative."

The National ID initiative continues to prove the "Conspiracy Theorists" and Libertarians correct. This latest DHS implementation is one more step towards Big Brother.
