DMV Records

August 24, 1992

Assemblyman Ross Johnson (R-Fullerton) authored a bill (AB 2543) allowing the Department of Motor Vehicles to "sell records for direct mail marketing purposes under certain conditions" (Aug. 20). And our Senate passed it, 21-9! Are they all nuts? After numerous tragedies involved when unauthorized persons got ahold of a citizen's name, address, etc., through DMV records, now we are faced with our private information being sold to advertisers? I object! Getting a driver's license should not be a "license" for this invasion of privacy!

The only people who have a right to this information are the police. I urge citizens to write their representatives and demand that AB 2543 be defeated and that our DMV information remain a private record open to no one but law enforcement authorities.
