Subject: Texas Driver's License Database on the Web

[Do you have a Texas driver's license or know someone else's Texas driver's  
license number?  No?  Then you may have to be a little more innovative to  
take advantage of this little item--but they say you can find out almost  
anything on the WWW...  -psl]

   This is a really spooky web site <>.  You can
search 17 million Texas drivers by name, driver's license number or license
plate number.  When you find a person, you can then find everyone at that
address with a license.  You can even find everyone with the same 9-digit
zip code.  The record does not have a GIF of the photo, but it has
everything else on the license.

   Did Psychos-R-Us request this site?  "Could you create a database so I
don't miss anyone when I go on a killing spree on the 900 block of Rosewood?"

   "28 my ass.  I just checked the web and it says you were born 1965.  Not
ready to admit to be post-30?  I'm not buying the 'I weigh 110' either.  I
read 118 plain as day."

   "I can't believe it.  That asshole just cut me off.  Well, Mr. ZBW-446,
I guess a little midnight visit is in order to 1918 Grover St.  Prepare to
be stalked."

   "Johnny, I looked up your record last night and I couldn't believe my
eyes.  You're livin' in sin with that Sally Jenkins slut.  How could you do
this to your Dad & me?  You move out now or we're gonna cut off your college

   Public Link says this is public information, but where are the good old
days when you had to have a friend down at the Dept of Public Safety who
would look plate numbers up for you?  If it was good enough for Rockford,
it's good enough for me.  Suppress your phone number & address from the
phone book, but then it shows up in a searchable database on the web.  Lot
of good that did you.  Now all those 7th Day Adventists know excatly where
you live.  Privacy, schmivacy.
