Why do I need a Drivers license?
just start off with
Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 221
Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579
Hertado v. California, 110 US 516
Just to name a few I can name more if you would like. So after looking over the cases how is it lawful to make a person in the U.S.A to have a drivers license because with out one you are not allowed to drive.
How can it be a law if the HIGHEST COURT IN OUR LAND as in no other court can overrule what they say has said it can not be a law?
So a lot of personal ideas but no real answers just the normal ignorance of the masses
Coach v. Chicago<>The use of the highway for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common fundamental right of which the public and individuals cannot rightfully be deprived
Thompson v. Smith<>The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common law right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
Hertado v. California<> the U.S Supreme Court states very plainly:
"The state cannot diminish rights of the people."

because human beings live and die in magic
magic words like ooo 'law', slap that word to anything and 'poof!' bad is vanquished
magic spells like 'code annotated', invoke chapter & verse and 'poof!' bad is vanquished
magic amulets like licenses and badges, show them and 'poof!' bad is vanquished
there's even magic speaking, "you get more flies with sugar" tells you your choice of words isn't magically enticing -to flies- Notice how the speaker invoking that power-of-suggestion is describing people as disease-carrying carrion-eating pests, and yet 'magically' the quoter assyoumes everyone is actually desirous of enticingly inviting such things!
lotsa magic in Modern, Advanced, Progressive, Developed, Civilized Societies.

Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago insures TRAVEL, not a right to operate anything.,
Thompson is only about the status of a Perpetual right to operate that is given in error and due process for revocation
Hertado v. California is a due process suit that has nothing specific to do with permission to operate

And not one word about OPERATING A VEHICLE.....

A driver's license is proof that you have passed both written and driving tests to the satisfaction of the state's agent. It's proof that you know the driving laws, and that you are capable of operating at least one motor vehicle in a safe manner. I know a lot of people who want to drive, but are not really capable of it. Either they don't know the driving laws, or they are not capable of driving due to physical problems, or both. For instance, a lot of older people simply can't see very well any more, or they have very slow reflexes. They might know the law, but if they drive, they are a danger to themselves and everyone else who's on the road.

Driving is a right, not a privilege.
As you can do damage to members of a society with your actions, it is the responsibility of that society to be sure drivers have a basic skill set before they get behind the wheel.
If you don't like that, move to Montana and stay off public roads.

Why not simply cite one that outright says, ""Persons faced with an unconstitutional licensing law which purports to require a license as a prerequisite to exercise of right ... may ignore the law and engage with impunity in exercise of such right." Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham 394 U.S. 147 (1969).
Let us know how that one works out for you.

Plain and simple. IF you want to operate a motor vehicle, to do so legally, you need a drivers license. It doesnt matter about previous or current court cases, that is the law.
Would love to see you ramble these out when you get pulled over with no license and get a ticket..etc.

You only need one to drive public streets.
