'Don't forget your ID!'

The Dutch adjust to compulsory identification

As of 1 January this year, all residents of the Netherlands aged 14 and above are required to be able to show ID when requested. That's a problem for those who've yet to avail themselves of a valid form of identification. A cash or library card won't do, but a passport, driving licence or special ID card will.

The lower age limit has been set at 14. A very good move, because it's youths aged between 14 and 16 who cause a relatively large amount of trouble, such as vandalism. Now they won't be able to try and remain anonymous. Once we know exactly who they are, they'll think twice before they start causing trouble again. Ultimately, it will get safer, and the nuisance level will decrease.



A passport will do... or a driving licence, identity card and, for non-Dutch inhabitants, a residence permit
