And people always called me crazy when I gained massive amounts of weight just before it was time to renew my license, and then went on a crash diet immediately afterwards. That coupled with the nose job and reverse nose job did the trick. Who's laughing now?

theknuckler_33: Is your driver's license photo supposed to be private?


You're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty.
Putting innocent people in databases is essentially equating them with criminals.

Just because it's convenient doesn't make it right - much like incest.

The office where I pickup my paycheck is right next door to a hydroponic supply place, so the cops probably think Im growing weed.

"Accidentally" walk in there right after you pick up your check. See if they have any empty boxes because you're moving or some such. Just one or two, and then walk out carrying the boxes & act like they're heavy.

Kristoph57: simusid: A local cop told me that they have license plate scanners in their cruisers and routinely if not continuously collect and save a database of what car is where.  This included routinely driving through parking lots of businesses to establish patterns.

This is why you always vary your patterns. Never drive the same road at the same time each day. Learn to watch for Crown Vics, Impalas, Chargers, and UC's with tinted windows. Back in if you can as some states don't require front & back license plates. Buy digital scales and a lot of small plastic baggies on a credit card and watch the street out front of your house. If you wake up in the middle of the night, turn on some lights, then flicker them on and off in false morse code.
