What a Smile is Worth

Someone driving a car

Look at your Drivers License… are you smiling in the picture?

If you look more annoyed than happy in your Drivers License photo, I cant blame you. By the time you get to that point at the DMV, you probably were pretty annoyed! But there’s a good reason you SHOULD be smiling in that photo:

Those who have ID pictures they’re smiling in, tend to be treated with more lenience by Police Officers. YUP! You’re less likely to get a ticket if you’re smiling in your Drivers License photo!

Police Officers see you as a normally happy person and give you the benefit of the doubt.
