As many as 56,000 Hoosiers may lose their drivers' licenses because they don't match the information in a Social Security database, and the American Civil Liberties Union is suing to keep it from happening:
"What the BMV is doing is taking legally an entitlement from thousands of people," the ACLU's Ken Falk said. "You're entitled to have a driver's license and the state can't come and take it away from you."
Well, I don't know about that; it depends on whether you consider driving a privilege or a right. Maybe a lawyer could clarify the issue for me, but I think driving is still considered more the former than the latter. Everything has been moving in the direction of rights in recent years, but there are still too many qualifications attached to driving (driver's age, condition of vehilce, insurance required, rules of the road, no drinking, etc., etc. etc.) for it not to still be just a privlege granted by the state.
