Facial Recognition Drivers License

High-Tech Driver's Licences
High-tech driver's licences will soon make their debut in British Columbia to help prevent identity theft and fraud. Solicitor General John van Dongen said Friday the new licences will be hard to forge or get under false names.“Driver's licences are widely trusted as ID and, when tampered with, can cost people, business and financial institutions millions of dollars each year,” Mr. van Dongen said in a statement. Security features will include facial recognition technology that analyzes facial characteristics that do not change, such as the size and location of cheekbones and the distance between the eyes.
