New Jersey Bans Smiling in Driver's License Photos
Going to the department of motor vehicles can put a frown on anyone's face, but for New Jersey residents, smiling is officially against the rules.

The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission has cracked down on drivers smiling in their driver's license photos because their smiles could interfere with new facial recognition software.

New Jersey resident Velvet McNeil told the Philadelphia Inquirer Thursday that when she went to get her license at her local New Jersey motor vehicle center, she was told she could not smile for her photo. Shocked, McNeil said she walked out of the center.

"Your picture means a lot," she told the newspaper. "It's who you are."

Re: New Jersey Bans Smiling in Driver's License Photos
I thought they were all doing that now. Alabama wouldn't let me smile for my driver's license 3 years ago, and I was told not to smile for my passport photo last week. It's because they want to be able to run you through facial recognition software whenever they want.

And that ain't no conspiracy theory. It's what the lady at the DMV AND the guy at Walgreens told me.

It's banned so that facial recognition software can be employed no other reason. We already have had this police state tech in Canada for years now.

It was funny the media ran the propaganda during the Stanley cup riot saying ICBC our provincial car insurance monopoly wasn't letting the RCMP have access to the facial recognition database.... Ya right lol, anything "serious" happens the gov freely shares that info.

It doesn't "mean a lot" to me. I don't believe my DL pic is "who I am", lol. I never smile for them, because I can't stand the way they take your picture.

But it says you can keep on head wear if it's for religious reasons. I'm wondering do you have to show a religious ID for that? And what if you wear one that covers your whole face?

And what about beards, beards can cover a lot of your face.

No kidding. DL picture means nothing to me. It's the only picture I'm forced to take, and I don't appreciate someone forcing me to have my picture made just to be allowed to drive my own car.

It's a Jersey thing.....
"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

This whole has nothing to do with smiling. The requirements - No smiling, looking straight ahead, etc is for Facial Recognition Technology, providing a reference photo for face dimensions. Couple that with facebook type "Tag your Friends" photos, and pretty soon you have enough photos at hand to build a 3d representation of most of the faces logged. Using these its fairly easy to see you can start to regognize faces from different angles, and in real time, if you had enough computing power - and they do. How's that for big brother.
