doesn't the trooper enter this info at the Barracks?
it doesn't seem to be a foothold for a scam as the trooper looks at your ID at the time of transfer.
am I missing something?
i doubt it but not holding my breath however.
don't want to end up like this
Would you be willing to give out that information to a total stranger over the internet? Probably not, but may I ask you why?
If it's not going to happen, why not give your most personal and private information to a total stranger over the internet/phone?
The HQL is legal by statute and COMAR. Nothing about the HQL is illegal under MD law. See the similarities?
I thought that we were comparing incremental infringements and disenfranchisement (whether intentional or not) and hypocrisy. I fully accept that the person(s) at MSP who have worked to get this in place have done so with the best of intentions. While I recognize that for me and maybe even most people in the state this portal has the potential to improve the process, I really can't believe that it's mandatory use is being defended with such vigor. If we as a group are going to argue that the HQL is a disenfranchising impediment to exercising a right then how can the need for computer access and a debit/credit card not be seen in the same light? Won't this have a similar chilling effect? To see comments to the effect of "Getting a debit card isn't that hard" or "just go use the computer at the library" have me shaking my head. I fear that some folks are thinking that this will be a way to remove the 7 day wait. While I hope that's true and will work towards it if a bill gets introduced, I don't see it getting through the MGA.The HQL is not what's being compared. We're comparing the new 77r system to the requirement to sign in at the HPRB.
The HQL requirement is being challenged by MSI . The e-portal is not.
file a lawsuit against the new system if you think otherwise.
Jim, do you buy things on line? do you give them your CC and other info?
there is some risk here as with any kind of online transaction. The site uses SSL encryption so its not inherently more dangerous than otrher on line transactions IMO.
You can't design everything to overcome being stupid.
But my CC company protects me from illegal use of my CC. There is no protection if I voluntarily give someone my driver's license number and social security information. I'm not concerned about the system being corrupt, I'm talking about the person I'm giving this information to being the criminal.
Giving your DL and CC to anyone is optional. You cn do this portion at the barracks or dealer.
No different than any action you take to protect your PII. It can't be more simple than that
you can't design a system that prevents stupidity.
Common sense is a good thing, but obviously not required by anything in our world
