A 95-year-old retiree from Annie, Texas, went to the local Department of Transportation to replace his driver's license and was refused due to lack of a birth certificate. The problem is, according to the Auto Evolution portal, that the man never had one.
- Albert Bigler does not have a birth certificate because he was born at home, not in a hospital, and his parents did not complete the necessary documents. At the same time, in his entire life, he did not experience any problems with this, regularly changing his driver's license for 65 years.
- Bigler, with the help of friends, turned to various departments to confirm his age, but there was no information about him in the archives. Employees of various instances were unable to help resolve the issue - despite the fact that Bigler has documents on baptism, confirmation and participation in World War II.
Now Albert Bigler cannot legally drive his pickup truck to the local church, where he helps with the housework. The man is worried that due to his unconfirmed age, he will be deprived of the right to vote in the elections, and his fishing license will not be renewed.
