We have to show a picture Id here in Chicago. Honestly I think it's a good idea. If, the DMV can verify all the person's info. As for the cost. Here an ID is 20.00 and is valid for 5 years. Maybe have some program set up to pay for it. Say seniors get them for free and low income folks can get them at a discount.
Don't people need Id's and such to apply for SSI, public assistance or to cash checks? We do here. I'm wondering what identification is acceptable in other parts of the country?
