New Law in Indiana!

You are not allowed to smile in your drivers license picture...or wear glasses!

MUNSTER, Ind. (AP) - Don’t say cheese at your next driver’s license photo.

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles is restricting glasses, hats, scarves, and even smiles in driver’s license photographs.

BMV officials told The Times of Northwest Indiana that the new rules imposed last month are needed so that facial recognition software can spot fraudulent license applications.

The applicant’s photograph will be compared with old photographs on file to protect customers from identity fraud.

Indiana is one of about 20 states using the technology.

BMV customers can petition to leave on headdresses in photographs for religious reasons and can petition to have a non-photo license or identification card.

A BMV spokesman says there have been few problems implementing the new rules.
