No reason to smile in New Jersey
When was the last time you thought about the DMV and smiled? Brendan Spaar does not think that the DMV is a happy place that you would make someone smile. New Jersey wants people to stop smiling so much. Literally. The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission is banning drivers license applicants from smiling when they have their photo taken. The reason? Smiling apparently interferes with facial recognition software. Why is the DMV using facial recognition software? They claim that they run your photo through their database to make sure that you only have one driving record. Do you buy that? Could it be linked to Homeland Security or some other government monitoring agency? Conspiracy theorists will charge that the government is building a huge database of our faces. Whatever the reason, getting a drivers license in New Jersey is nothing to smile about.
