You don’t need to be intending to make babies within marriage to get married and now you can drive blind. Why should a marriage license be any different then a driver’s license? That does have a certain logic.
(NYPost)ALBANY, N.Y. — New York is dropping its requirement for vision tests to make it easier for drivers to renew licenses online or by mail.Department of Motor Vehicles Commissioner Barbara Fiala said in a statement Monday that the change is one of several stemming from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s call for streamlining by state agencies. Another change is a new Internet application, “MyDMV,” which allows customers to set up personal online accounts to do business with DMV. Starting Wednesday, drivers will “self-certify” that they meet the vision requirement when they renew. New licenses and commercial licenses will still require eye tests at a DMV office or by a doctor. Fiala said vision testing wasn’t required in New York from 1993-2000, and six other states don’t require eye tests for renewals.
