    BUFFALO, N.Y. — New legislation regarding bicycle safety will come into effect as Gov. Kathy Hochul takes measures that will require new drivers to learn about pedestrian and bicycle safety when on the road. This new requirement will be apart of new drivers pre-licensing exam and will be a prerequisite to obtaining any motor vehicle license. "My top priority as Governor is to keep New Yorkers safe, and it is common sense to make pedestrian and bike safety education mandatory for drivers," Governor Hochul said in a statement. "This law will help prevent crashes and save lives, and I thank...

    This is how I feel this fine Caturday:That’s not an aura, it’s a visual manifestation of a force field comprised of nerve endings that you don’t want to get within 6 feet of (it’s for your own safety).

  • Meet the lawyers going viral who can’t seem to figure out how to get a driver’s license in Texas [Apparently, these lawyers don't know how to read and follow instructions]

    lol this thread is something else. An attorney thinks you should be able to show up at a DMV with an out-of-state license, and get an in-state ID / voter registration without bringing proof of address in your own name. This is “voter suppression”?

    A Missouri taxi company will not provide transportation to people who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or are wearing masks. "We don't allow any type of masks in our vehicles," Yo Transportation owner Charlie Bullington told KMOV in an interview. "The second one, we're very against the vaccines, and we do not wish to have people in our vehicle that did the vaccines." Bullington said that, prior to pickup, he verifies that his passengers have not been vaccinated and will be wearing a face covering. The company's website said that it offers rides in Franklin, Jefferson, Lincoln, Montgomery, St. Charles,...

    Jacque Trevini loves her vintage Porsche and says it gets lots of looks when she's driving down the road. "Well, it's a 1963 Porsche 356. And it's obviously red," she jokingly told 3 On Your Side. "People always wave or give a thumbs up when I’m driving. Little kids love it." But the car's Arizona registration has become a big problem. That's because when Jacque and her husband tried to re-register it recently, employees at the MVD office said, "No." And the reason, was jaw dropping. "We took the paperwork, and they looked at us and said that it doesn't...

    Nevada Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) records suggest that nearly 4,000 legal and illegal aliens cast votes in the 2020 general election, according to a sworn affidavit filed with a state court.As part of legislation enacted by the state’s Democrats, the DMV automatically registers to vote every person who obtains a driver’s license. In Nevada, both legal and illegal non-citizens can obtain driver’s licenses and identification cards.Jesse Kamzol, an expert engaged by the Republican Party as part of an election lawsuit, matched the 110,164 non-citizen records from the DMV, which were obtained through a subpoena by the state’s Republican Party,...

But many New Jerseyans posting on social media seemed to think Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, could have done more to prevent the problems.

    While police in New York have been enforcing social distancing and stay-at-home orders in the last few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, the state effectively worked to “criminalize” part of their jobs. A U.S. Attorney in New York accused Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of “legislating obstruction” with a law that bans police from sharing Department of Motor Vehicles information with federal immigration agencies. New York’s Green Light Law was passed last year allowing a driver’s license to anyone without legal immigration status, and now the approved 2020 budget has added an eyebrow-raising amendment. While the Green Light Law prohibited the...

The Green Light Law also prohibited the sharing of DMV information to any federal agency in charge of immigration.Last month, the original law was amended as part of the 2020 budget, now making it an E Felony for any law enforcement officer to share DMV records with another law enforcement agency in charge of immigration like ICE or DHS.“Border Patrol...

    I worked Oregon and California elections as an election judge or clerk for years. I witnessed vote by mail in Oregon and the Republicans never won much after that. The Oregon socialists pushed this and went to vote by mail to CHEAT. I witnessed a democrat county clerk and a democrat county commissioner going to gather ballots from drop boxes..a clear violation that states two people must do person from each party. The clerks remark your ballots!!! YES THEY DO! They call it 'enhancing', claiming the machine can't read the mark unless it's marked over. NO ONE should EVER...

    Some Californians trying to renew driver licenses and car registrations online say the Department of Motor Vehicles is shutting them out, an NBC4 I-Team investigation has found. Two weeks ago, the DMV closed its 176 field offices across the state to the public, in the wake of an I-Team report that those often crowded offices might be breeding grounds for the coronavirus. An internal memo obtained by the I-Team says there have now been 15 cases of COVID-19 in the DMV. At the time, the DMV promised to expand its "virtual field office" so people could renew licenses and registrations...

    I saw this tweet the instant it was posted and laughed at how it reminds me of the famous July 25th call between Trump and Zelensky. He doesn’t explicitly say, “If you want this public benefit from me, I need a personal benefit from you,” but by linking the two in the same communication it’s clear in context what he’s proposing. I’m seeing Governor Cuomo today at The White House. He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics. New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes. Build relationships,...

    “I’m calling their bluff,” Andrew Cuomo told WAMC this morning, but who’s blinking first? Usually it’s the one seeking the negotiation, and the New York governor had to request the meeting after the Department of Homeland Security cut off the state’s residents from its trusted traveler programs. DHS argued that a new law barring access to the state’s DMV records made it impossible to verify eligibility for New York residents, along with their decision to issue licenses and IDs to those already illegally in the US.CBS News reports that Cuomo remains defiant, saying that he will “never give them...

    SACRAMENTO — Already besieged by problems including long wait times, the California Department of Motor Vehicles on Tuesday said it suffered a “data breach” in which federal agencies, including immigration authorities, had improper access to the Social Security information of 3,200 people issued driver’s licenses. Notices of the data breach went out to those whose Social Security information — including whether or not a license holder had a Social Security number — was accessed during the last four years by seven agencies, including the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Internal Revenue Service, the Small Business Administration and district attorneys...

A 40-year-old Bengali-American filed the complaint against the New York DMV Friday after he said the department failed to adjust his schedule for Friday prayers and Ramadan after his repeated requests.

    As citizens in the digital age, we deal with so many privacy scandals and data breaches that entire books could be filled with stories about them. And it's not just high profile individuals anymore, either. Between Yahoo's billions-strong security hack or Facebook's Cambridge Analytica debacle, nearly everyone you know has probably suffered a privacy breach at some point recently. Thanks to recent reports, it's becoming even more clear that you or someone you know has likely had their data accessed without their explicit permission. Only this time, the culprits aren't criminals or hackers on the internet, but ordinary bureaucrats at...

    A woman fired her gun outside the Parkville License Office in Kansas City, Missouri, reportedly because she was tired of waiting. The woman, estimated to be in her 40s, entered the building and started cursing when she saw the long line and insisted on being next in line. The unidentified female asked DMV workers to call their supervisor, who was not on the premises at the time. Zick says she followed the woman outside to get her license plate number. The woman then pulled out a gun and fired into the air. The woman then allegedly fired twice into a...
