No? Seriously?

The State of Florida made $62,968,946 from the sale of Floridians driver's license information in the last fiscal year, a practice that has been occurring almost unknown for years.

I-Team investigator Michael George reported that the state's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles sells drivers' license information, including Floridians full name, date of birth, address, and driver’s license number, to ten different companies.


The department said it only sells the information to companies that intend to use it for legal purposes, and not for marketing or advertising.

  Raw Story

I have two alternate responses to that:

1) So that’s okay, then; 2) What legal purposes would those be?

I wonder what other states are doing the same.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.


  1. Good grief. Ten companies? They are paying a great deal of money for information that they don't use for marketing or advertising? Sure they are.


  2. exactly. what other 'legal purposes' are there?
