RFID chips in driver’s licenses. What could go wrong?

Radio frequency identification chips are everywhere—in passports, library and payment cards, school ID cards, and even in NFL players' uniforms. So why not put RFID chips in driver's licenses? California Gov. Jerry Brown has a bill awaiting his veto or signature that would do just that. The states of Washington, New York, Michigan, and Vermont already have adopted the spy-friendly, voluntary program that links your license with the Department of Homeland Security. For the moment, the cards are designed to be used instead of passports at US land borders in a bid to speed up the entrance lines from Mexico and Canada.
