Right to travel: what does it mean to you and why do we give it up?

Right to Travel Vs Drivers License ---->Georgia House Bill 875 "Right to Travel Act"

When I ask why do we give it up I mean that in reference to having a drivers license with the state (you could just have a state ID instead). That means you ask permission to travel b/c your state will probably define driving as the same term that Black Law defines Traveling although with the Law they are distinctly different.

Please read the House Bill first. This ACT is on behalf of the PEOPLE of Georgia State (where) I live.

  • Sounds like they are attempting to make it so that one does not have to have a driver's license in order to drive a motor vehicle. Is that correct?
    If so, would they also do away with the age requirement for obtaining a driver's license, ie: traveling on the roads & highways?

  • A drivers license certifies that you understand the laws of your state before you're allowed to drive a two ton death machine. You can still travel. It's HARDER but you can still travel by getting rides, taking a bus or using your own two feet. You only give up your right to travel if you're imprisoned.

    It's a silly bill and will die in committee, because the state won't want to take on the liability of untested drivers out on the roads.

  • thats why there is a legal age of adulthood and drivers education in public schools, and even certification vs a young or nut job driving crazy on the road. note this also applies to driving w/o registration and all the other traffic violations of "codes" not laws.
