For those foolish and blinded enough to believe this is for your 'security' and 'safety'
There is no security or safety in these RFID tagged drivers licence.
Look at how accessible RFID readers are, to anyone, for a few hundred dollars.
So anyone armed with a reader, can drive by, walk by, ride their bicycle past and scan the RFID tag in the drivers licence, and bingo, your information is in the hands of whoever!
It can happen at home, in the mall, at the park, where ever. It doesn't matter.
The concept, the very reason for the tag is to keep track of YOU.
Your movements, your whereabouts, your travels.
That is right, TRACKING YOU, like a bit of inventory, and nothing more.
Call it the tracking of humankind. The end of freedom of movement.
Fully stripped of our humanity, we are ready to be tracked like any other service or product. Like any other consumer good. Isn't that what we are? A good? Ever notice people are not referred to as people, always the consumer?
And, all that information, that can be gathered. Information about you! Which then could be used against you. Or sold to the highest bidder.

"The radio frequency identity (RFID) tag that will be embedded into the card can be read not only by authorized readers, but just as easily by unauthorized readers," Ann Cavoukian said in a statement accompanying the release of her 2008 annual report Wednesday.
