>New York DMV Celebrates RFID Enhanced Misery

09/17/2009

>BTC- What an awkward circle of celebration this is. Picture government officials gathered around a fold out table with little cupcakes to celebrate the retardation of an achievement which actually disserves and angers the majority of New Yorkers. It reminds me of a scene from Office Space. Most New Yorkers oppose the Enhanced Drivers Licenses. Legalizing EDLs in NY was perceived as one of former Governor Spitzer’s failures.

The EDL is equipped with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag containing a unique number with no personal information. The number can be read only by specialized equipment at select border crossing locations. On November 24, 2008, the first RFID Vicinity reader lanes opened in Buffalo. Buffalo was the first city in New York to add the RFID lanes and only the third area in the nation. Three additional New York ports of entry, including Champlain, Massena and Alexandria Bay had this equipment installed in April 2009. The entire network in the U.S. was installed by the end of May 2009, encompassing the 39 busiest land border crossings in the nation.
