TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Department of motor vehicle offices in Arkansas, Indiana, Nevada, and Virginia now require "neutral" facial expressions for driver license photos.

The trend is catching on, as more and more states - more than 30, to be more exact - now use software which compares new license photos with others that have already been taken. The system is used to prevent fraud and ID theft.

Is it headed to Texas? We will have the answer for you tonight on KLTV News at 10.
