EFF: Your DMV photos are about to be compromised

An obscure advisory committee in the California Department of Justice is scheming to connect your driver license and state ID data with a national law enforcement network and allow cops to use facial recognition on your photos. Speak out now.

They’re moving forward even though they’ve been told by the California Department of Motor Vehicles that the law doesn’t allow for this kind of expansion, which would pose serious data security and privacy problems.

Still, the CLETS Advisory Committee, as it’s called, has been scheduling private meetings with the state’s largest law-enforcement lobbying organizations and applying for grants to build out the technological infrastructure to make this happen.

The advisory committee isn’t used to hearing from the public. You can help to stop this expansion dead in its tracks by joining us in sending letters to the committee in advance of its next meeting on March 25.

Use our tool to generate a public comment today—before it’s too late.

2. Why prolong the inevitable?

 

We all know how technology is taking over, some for good and some for bad. This seems bad now, but in the near future you won't be recognized by your license anymore. Minority Report is coming.

3. I'm glad they can recognize the face on my new license

Because I certainly don't any more. I mean, when did I get jowls?
