Sometimes it feels like the wild west when we're driving in Texas doesn't it? Seriously, it feels like horses would be easier to control on the roadway than a motor vehicle. But this is the future, and cars are simply much faster.

But once you have the item that let's you drive, there are certain things that you must do to keep it updated. That means renewing your driving permit when it expires. Or in today's case, updating where you live on the license.

A police officer also stated that while under normal circumstances a Class C Misdemeanor could result in a fine topping out at $500, the most you could end up paying is $200.
