As if it's not bad enough to get points on your driving record for speeding, rolling through a stop sign or running a red light, now cops have started fingerprinting along with each traffic ticket issued.
Green Bay, WI, police have begun fingerprinting everyone they fine, no matter how petty their crime may have been.
"If you're caught speeding or playing your music too loud, or other crimes for which you might receive a citation, Green Bay police officers will ask for your drivers license and your finger, "WBay.com reported. "You'll be fingerprinted right there on the spot. The fingerprint appears right next to the amount of the fine."
They say it's because too many people are using fake IDs, and this is the only way to ensure they ticket the right person. Uh-huh. Sure.... it sounds like one scary violation of privacy to me.
