The Vermont chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has said that the states's driving and vehicle authorities should no longer user face recognition, because it violates privacy norms.Vermont's Department of Motor Vehicles has had to launch a legal review of its facial recognition program after the ACLU called for an immediate halt to the programme.The ACLU sent the DMV an 11-page letter on Tuesday outlining civil liberties concerns related to the program, which uses facial recognition technology to scan the DMV's database of more than 700,000 individuals.The DMV uses biometric tech to prevent fraud and crime.According to the ACLU, this contravenes Vermont Statute law: “The Department of Motor Vehicles shall not implement any procedures or processes for identifying applicants for licenses, learner permits, or nondriver identification cards that involve the use of biometric identification.”Jay Diaz, a staff attorney for the Vermont ACLU, tells Vermont Public Radio the program is in violation of a Vermont law that prohibits using biometrics to identify license applicants. DMV Commissioner Robert Ide said Wednesday the department launched an internal review after receiving the ACLU's letter, saying the letter is very well researched and deserves the agency's attention from their own perspective.
