Correct me if I am wrong, but under Islamic Law, women are NOT permitted to drive a car. If she wants a driver's license, she is breaking Islamic Law. Some Muslim. My conclusion: If she wants her driver's license, OFF WITH HER VEIL !!!
The one angle I haven't heard the State of Florida bring up is that driving w/ that kind of veil cuts off her peripheral vision, making her a clear and present danger to her fellow floridans behind the wheel. They should make it illegal to drive like that. Afterall, if it's illegal to drive w/ a cell phone or a burger in your hand, it should be illegal to drive like that. I concur w/ you. If she wants to drive, she should take off that veil. Driving in a priviledge, not a right.

Another angle to use is that a lot of places use your driver's license as an id. Want to cash a check? Let me see your license. Ditto for using a credit card (sometimes) or for getting into a bar.
How are these places supposed to guess that the person behind the ski mask (which is really looks like, a "veil" to me means slightly see through) is who they say they are?
What's a bank to do if she shows up with the mask on, and presents her masked id? Just hope to Allah that she is who she says she is?

I don't care if she wants to walk around with a grocery bag over her head, complete with little drawn on eyes, nose and mouth. She, however has NO RIGHT to be allowed the priviledge of operating a motor vehicle in this country as long as she refuses to be photographed without the mask on. The whole purpose of a picture ID is to verify that the person on the ID is in fact the person holding it. What kinda dip$hit moron would ask that the picture be taken while their face is covered. Why not such type in the space "PHOTO NOT AVAILABLE."
How stupid we've become that this vermin even gets the time of day with just a crazy demand. THEY SHOULD SIMPLY SEND HER HOME WITH NO LICENSE.
Also...Where I grew up, people who wore masks were BAD GUYS!!
