- “Why do I need a driver’s license?”
Ah, yes! The age old question, “Why do I need a driver’s license?” Just kidding, it’s pretty simple to understand why you need a driver’s license, especially since this Florida Man managed to crash a golf cart into a BMW after being ticketed seven times for driving with a suspended license.
