I also agree that some type of biometric security should be implemented into these badges, however there is one problem even using that technolgy. The average person on the street has no way of scanning the chip, so it would only benifit the authorities. Still a good idea though.
Perhaps they can issue even man, woman and child a scanner to verify that they are real. Yes, I know it sounds kind of stupid, but just think about it for a minute. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to verify they are who they claim there are?
I say this knowing that new DL's are going to have built in RFID's and the benefits outweigh the cons. No need for companies to run detailed background checks to make sure a new employee is a legal immigrant, the list goes on and on.
