NMA Driving News Stories of the Week 

Male, female or X? Oregon adds third option to driver’s licenses
Oregon on Thursday became the first U.S. state to allow residents to identify as neither male nor female on state driver’s licenses, a decision that transgender advocates called a victory for civil rights. Under a policy unanimously adopted by the Oregon Transportation Commission, residents can choose to have an “X,” for non-specified, displayed on their driver’s license or identification cards rather than an “M” for male or “F” for female.

Five of the Six Safest States Ban Photo Ticketing
Advocates for red-light cameras and speed cameras insist that the devices save lives. The latest figures from the US Department of Transportation suggest, however, that five out of the six states with the lowest fatality rates have banned the use of automated ticketing machines.
