Gotta make a buck any way they can

The California Department of Motor Vehicles is generating revenue of $50,000,000 a year through selling drivers’ personal information, according to a DMV document obtained by Motherboard. DMVs across the country are selling data that drivers are required to provide to the organization in order to obtain a license. This information includes names, physical addresses, and car registration information. California’s sales come from a state which generally scrutinizes privacy to a higher degree than the rest of the country.

    Your AGE is the most valuable bit of information from DMV. Over 60 and you’re inundated with junk mail from retirement homes, hearing-aid peddlers, local cemeteries, dentists, and banks.

      Modern day oldsters get tons of scam calls every day. If it weren’t for Caller ID we’d all go crazy with the constant intrusions. Thanks for nothing, you cocksuckers in Congress, for doing absolutely nothing about telephone abuse. Yeah, we all know: you got bigger fish to fry.
