    SkipLagged Flights, Cheaper Air Fares, Risky?

    U.S. Drivers License

    I've been renewing my Florida license since I left there. Since I don't have an address in Fla my license has my sister-in-laws address in Illinois. It's up for renewal again and I'm thinking that after 7 years this scheme might not be the best way to maintain a US license. The easiest...
