Screw Having A Drivers License! Who Here Does Not Use One (Successfully!)Submitted by Jdayh on Wed, 03/19/2014 - 22:00
After reading the post on NY and their "law" I thought... why in the hell do we still use them? It has been proven via several supreme court rulings that they are not lawfully needed or required to be able to drive a car on the road, so...
WHY THE HELL DOES ANYONE EVEN GET THEM ANYMORE?
If you or anyone you know, has successfully driven without a license in any state, please share your experiences. Also any court cases, or documentation that people can use to prove the legality would be great!
here are the two cases, (thanks meek and mild!)
CASE #1: "The use of the highway for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common fundamental right of which the public and individuals cannot rightfully be deprived." Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 221.
CASE #2: "The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common law right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579.
