A friend of mine in Utah had a woman in a much smaller car hit him from behind in his truck at a stop sign.
The woman was Mexican—she barely spoke any English—and her 2 kids had to be her interpreter. Her car was pretty messed up & he had very minor damage.
She insisted on calling the cops. He complied.
It turns out that the DRIVER’S LICENSE that she presented to my friend was issued in Utah and clearly states on it : NOT TO BE USED FOR ID!!!!
How could this woman get a driver’s license under the Patriot Act without a birth certificate?
I had to give a proper birth certificate, my old driver’s license, and 2 or 3 other items of ID before I could get my driver’s license in Nevada when I moved here 7 ++ years ago.
Why is ANY state giving out driver’s licenses that don’t have the same requirements that we have here in Nevada under the Patriot Act??? Why can you have a DRIVER’S LICENSE and NOT be able to use such document for ID?
The woman did present insurance evidence, tho. But her car is probably totalled. Gotta love driving our trucks!!
For the money and time spent wringing hands over ‘they don’t have any way to get ID’, it would be easier & cheaper to set up kiosks in grocery stores & banks & have the state issue ID’s for a nominal fee—or free.
Then we can get a better feeling about voter fraud.
It’s called a “driving privilege card”. Our illustrious idiots in our state legislature decided it would be “safer” to give illegals some form of driving ID, but in order to conform with federal Real ID guidelines, it has to be different from the actual Utah drivers license, and has to read “not to be used for ID.” In order to get a real UT DL you do have to jump through all the hoops you mentioned for getting a Nevada DL. These need practically nothing. So your friend was hit by an illegal. I don’t know why they don’t just arrest everyone coming into DMV and applying for these cards, since they’re admitting they’re in the country illegally, but that’s just me. It’s made Utah a magnet for Arizona’s illegal population as AZ has been cracking down. And our political idiots can’t seem to understand why our crime rates are increasing and our school test scores are plummeting.
