Here's an article that was sent to me from a friend...
Driver License Compact
, is basically an agreement between each of the
45 member states including the District
to exchange information regarding certain traffic
violations including DUI
vehicular manslaughter with each of the member states.
For example if you are arrested for DUI in the state of Colorado,
but you live in Arizona, the state of Colorado will inform the state of Arizona
of the DUI offense
and Arizona will treat the DUI
arrest as if it happened in the state of Arizona.
In its most basic form, the Driver License Compact basically
says that an individual has only one drivers license record or driving record.
Originally the Driver License Compact only dealt with
serious offenses, such as drunk driving
, but now
any traffic violation
that happens in a non-resident state will be reported back to the
driver’s state of residence.
So if someone is stopped for
speeding in the state of Florida, but they live in Texas the violation and the
points will be assessed to their Texas
Driver License Compact Member States
District of Columbia
Child Support omnibus
In 1998 Arizona passed the child support omnibus bill
HB2451. It requires a social security number in order to get a drivers license
for all drivers – adding social security number to the already nationwide
driving record database.
So far the database contains at a minimum:
Name, date of birth, address, social security number, and
full driving record.
have been attempts nearly every year since this bill's enactment to repeal it,
but to no avail.
Russell Pearce’s bill
This bill will now share Arizona resident's data not only with
the Driver License Compact Member States but also
with Homeland Security (SB1070 and its companion, HB2632). It will also
change the language so that anyone committing a ‘public offence’
vs. a ‘crime’ can now be detained and 'identified'. I don’t
know what the legal meaning of ‘public offence’ is - probably none
which means they can pick up anyone for any reason.
Photos to be added to National database
The International Justice & Public Safety Network,
commonly known as Nlets, is coordinating an image-sharing system that allows
law enforcement personnel to exchange driver’s license photographs across
The Global Justice Information Sharing Initiative (Global)
serves as a Federal Advisory Committee (FAC) and advises the U.S. Attorney
General on justice information sharing and integration initiatives. Global was
created to support the broad scale exchange of pertinent justice and public
safety information. It promotes standards-based electronic information exchange
to provide the justice community with timely, accurate, complete, and
accessible information in a secure and trusted environment.
Global is a ''group of groups,'' representing more than 30
independent organizations, spanning the spectrum of law enforcement, judicial,
correctional, and related bodies. Member organizations participate in Global
with a shared responsibility and shared belief that, together, they can bring
about positive change by making recommendations and supporting the initiatives
of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ).
The driver’s license was originally meant to keep
unsafe drivers off the street. [Say, how has that worked out?] The social
security number was [ONLY] meant to enable employee’s social security
benefits [and nothing else]. [Say, how has that worked out?] Both of these
have been co-opted to create a National ID and have been used for some time for
the purposes of identification and immigration. The child support omnibus bill
needs to be repealed as well as Russell's bill.
