I posted this above, but I'm sick of seeing the "Driving is a privilege, not a right." argument over and over again in this thread.

The courts have held, time and time again (in the past) that driving WAS a right. Here's a brief summary from one such case. There are many other findings just like this. Feel free to research on your own.

"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 at will, but a common right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 179.
