DMVs using facial recognition software

At least 34 states use facial recognition software. This scans drivers license photos looking for duplicates and possible terrorists.

The problem, as one Massachusetts man discovered, is false positives. The computer thought he looked liked somebody else. Without any hearing or fact finding, the Registry of Motor Vehicles revoked his license. Ten days of fighting later, he's OK to drive again. (Law suiting pending.)

No matter where you get a ticket in South Carolina, you can pay it in one place. The state site now takes those payments.

When you're carrying drugs, drive carefully. A woman, stopped for weaving in traffic, was subsequently arrested when 2 syringes (one in plain sight) and a baggie of heroin were allegedly discovered.
