To this day I still thank the Philippine Rabbit Bus driver who didn't kill me in '86.  My bad, his good, Joie Chitwood would have been impressed.  Tom

 I'm just glad I didn't try driving in VN.  The roads are a mess and the drivers dangerous.  I witnessed near fatal accidents on a regular basis on my trips there.

My point was insurance for alien drivers should be the only issue and giving them a U.S. DL should be a non issue.   Only foreign country that ever required me to get their DL was Korea 33 years ago(and making a westerner prove they could read their road signs was good idea)     Tom

When I crossed the border into Mexico during my days at Laughlin AFB., Mexico honored my Pennsylvania DL but required proof of insurance that was valid in Mexico.  USAA provided me a letter of coverage through a Mexican affiliate. Simple enough.  So is the concept of reciprocity.  Mexican DL should be valid here.  No need to issue them a U.S. one.  Just carry proof of insurance.    Tom

I reread what Dallas was doing and I didn't see anything about wanting anyone
to have a US DL, just proof of insurance.  It didn't say anything about Mexican DL
not being legal.  What does having a USA DL have to do with anything Dallas is doing?
