RFID Is Coming To A Drivers License Near You

It’s an RFID themed day. New Yorkers will soon have the option to embed an RFID chip in their drivers licenses according to Autoblog.

The advantage to opting for the $30.00 license upgrade is simply that you will no longer have to carry a separate passport to go to and from Canada. Additionally, the radio frequency identification chip will be able to be scanned by authorities to identify citizens entering the state from Mexico and the Caribbean as well. Intercontinental travelers will still need to produce a passport to enter the country.

Authorities say no personal information will be stored or transmitted by the chip, only an identification number. Alternatively you can opt to have your Social Security number tattooed on the back of your head as well.

I’m just joking. Seriously…
