The officer told him that under Rhode Island law, when we got our license, we agreed to carry it on us at all times, no matter what we were doing.
I admit, I did not read every single word of my license renewal, but I was rather shocked to be told this. Having to carry your license on you at all times is something that is usually expected in countries where freedom is seriously restricted.
After running my drivers license, the officer let us go, but sternly warned my husband that he'd better never be caught outside without his drivers license on him ever again, the implication being that if he was, he would be in serious trouble.
Is this really a law in RI?
