DMV Looks at Ears, Eyes, Mouths as Well as Faces

Since 2008, the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles has been using a facial recognition program wherein trained technicians take and compare photos of motorists with those in a database. If the computer program finds matches with similar features, it may lead to verification of identity - or the discovery that a person is using identification in more than one name.

Lack of a match may indicate that a person has given a fraudulent name. In the first quarter of 2009 alone, the DMV discovered 12,900 potential cases and pursued 363 of them.
