in September or October, Colorado will use a face-recognition
system for everyone seeking a commercial or regular driver's
license. The idea is to create a template of a person's face
that will be stored on a database and used to help deter identify
A DMV spokeswoman
said the technology will be used whenever an adult is a first-time
applicant for a Colorado license, including a commercial driver's
license. "The intent is to assure that the person does
not currently have a Colorado license in another name or identity,"
If an individual's
new and old photos don't match, a warning is triggered and the
police could be notified. Licenses also will have an invisible
identifier so stores and banks can detect whether they're genuine
and not made on a home computer.
