Had to scan in 2 fingerprints as well...

As often as I have been printed lately, you would think everyone would know who I am by now..

Why do they need your fingerprints to drive a car?

The fingerprint is part of the new type drivers license, I got one of the first ones, I think they only scanned one finger. The fingerprint isn't displayed on the license, I think it's encoded in the computer code on the back of the license, or it might just be in your records at DPS.

It is a part of a new system called Pegasus. It will cut down on id theft. It will also stop the name game to a large extent. In the near future when havin contacewith the police you place your finger on a scanner and it will automatically pull up your driving history, warrant checks and your photo. Pretty hard to say you are someone else then.

The photo is digitized into distances between the eyes and chin, making a triangle. Each measurement is unique to the individual. It really is a slick system.
I'm not crazy about the IC/hologram built into the licenses so they can track your movement. But hey, this is the information age!

If they put in the IC in your ass like they did McVeigh's, they'll regret it!
