Plan to Post Driver License Pics on Wanted Site on Hold

Dallas County Commissioner Mike Cantrell pushed for the idea in order to collect fines.  He says “there’s $110 million dollars on the street right now.  And one cent on our tax rate is worth $13 million.  So that’s pretty significant.”
At issue are privacy concerns.  Cantrell says the Texas Attorney General’s opinion is they don’t know whether putting driver license photos on line violates the Federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.
He says one idea under consideration is taking photos of people who come to court but need more time.  Another  is putting wording on traffic citations that those who don’t take care of their case, waive the right to privacy.
