Fake News Fact Check: No, these are not 'new 2019 California DMV laws'

The #FakeNews post
For the last few weeks I've seen this 'California DMV 2019 new laws' post floating around in different groups and profiles on social media. Much of it seemed far fetched, so I did some research today.

I have found this is indeed 100% #FakeNews.

None of this 'info' is correct or relevant to California in any way. This image is a combination of proposed laws in various American states that weren't enacted, Canadian provincial laws that were enacted in January 2019 and Photoshop (changing words and terms).

Absolute, total rubbish.

Many of us (myself included), have re-posted misleading or untrue things on social media and almost always it's well-intentioned. But spreading fake info just confuses other folks for no reason.

I encourage everyone to take everything you see posted on the internet with a grain of salt.

Please, before spreading what maybe untrue information, do a little research so that we can all be better informed.

Share *this* post instead.
