ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A Maryland state delegate is drafting 'emergency legislation' that would protect drivers whose licenses may be confiscated by police during the state's transition to Real ID.
Customers who have been notified must return to the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) to prove their age and identity. The MVA will flag licenses of people who have not returned and those drivers will risk having their IDs confiscated by police in a traffic stop.
Maryland state delegate Eric Ebersole is worried that confiscating licenses will create problems because those drivers may continue to drive without possessing a valid driver's licenses, a violation of state law.
He expressed his concern in a letter to the MVA on Thursday.
