If you've been planning on going to the DMV and getting a second license with a different name, you might want to reconsider. Thanks to newish software the state is actively seeking double dippers and today it announced that it has arrested 51 bus and truck drivers for having two licenses. Including four who were working for the MTA. What makes this story really fun though are the fake (not to mention the real) names they used!

All of the MTA employees have been fired (the MTA has "zero tolerance for this type of behavior") and all 51 of those caught have been charged at least with one felony count of offering false instrument. And for the record, since February 2010 the DMV has caught more than 800 people using multiple licenses. Why do people want multiple licenses? According to the state, drivers will often use them to hide arrests and traffic violations from authorities and employers.

But where the story gets fun is when you peruse some of the names that people picked for their second identities. The DMV provided a full list of the names (while pointing out that "all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven otherwise in court") and, well, it is hard to pick a favorite. Some are simple enough to figure out (Shabaz Muhammad's alter ego is Muhammad Shahbaz) and some are less so (Jean U. Paris's alter ego is Ulrick Joesph).
