Driver's Licenses As National ID?

It's already used as the ID of choice throughout most of the United States.To write a check, open a video-store account, or board a plane, you must flash your driver's license. And now that small card tucked in your wallet is about to get more sophisticated. A piece of the new National Intelligence Reform Act signed into law last week requires national standards for state licenses. It's another ripple from 9/11, when seven of the hijackers used fake driver's licenses to board the planes. The standards, to be hammered out over the next 18 months by state and federal officials along with technology specialists and "interested parties," are raising concerns among privacy experts who see the move as the first step down the road to a national ID or centralized information on individuals.

It's a development - described by one congresswoman as "radioactive " - that has long been opposed by privacy advocates in the public and government alike.

What several analysts question is why this standardizing IDs makes us more secure?
