OK, I've got it figured out. The forms and questions plus the long wait in getting your drivers license renewed is intentional to make sure there is no way you'll smile when it's picture time. Just got mine in the mail yesterday, looks like a mug shot on the FBI's 10 most wanted list. Any chance of talking your way out of a ticket will be lost when the officer sees that picture and goes through every possible criminal and terrorist data base available. A strip search for j-walking? Then again once they see below the neck that will be out of the question. J-walking in Ames, hell, that's a tradition. I think I'll scotch tape the smiley face over it, at least it goes with my body.
