Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Pranking Virgina DMV

tags: , , , , , , , ,

The Department of Motor Vehicles has sure changed since when I lived the US. For example, I once had a cast on my foot and was told to wait to renew my driver’s license until after the cast had been removed. When I see what these two guys managed to do, I admit I feel somewhat put out because after all, DMV wasn’t photographing my foot!

A news report about this prank:

    You can’t pull that in RI. We have the retarded system where you get a provisional on paper license and your actual license is mailed to you.

    We’d never be able to do this in the UK, our ID photos are strictly regulated. I’ve had an application sent back because the photo I provided was slightly not zoomed in enough.
