Many of you wouldn't like traveling in Europe. When you check into a hotel, the clerk takes your passport. Overnight, the police come in and make a record of whom is staying in the hotel, using the passports. It's the law there.
When I lived in The Netherlands, I had to register at the town police station. My family and I were on a short leash, being watched for a few weeks in our new rented home.
Back here in the states, if someone really wants to find out all about you, your drivers license and/or your vehicle tag number will get a determined person any amount of information they want about you.
