Drivers in Dilemma As Md. Shifts Gears On License Policy

author Published by Chris Chmielenski

As many as 350,000 licensed Maryland drivers might soon face a seemingly impossible choice that could upend daily life for their families and gum up the gears of the local economy: Stop driving or get behind the wheel illegally.

They’re illegal immigrants but not illegal drivers. They’ve been carrying licenses endorsed by Maryland governors and lawmakers for years, thanks to policies shaped with a sensitivity to newcomers and a belief that state-certified drivers are safer drivers. But the General Assembly is shifting course to comply with a federal security law that requires states to issue licenses only to lawful residents. Lisa Rein and Nick Miroff — Washington Post
