Does anyone knows if this is even legal. I went in to renew my license, and they refused to renew it. I had lung surgery 5 weeks ago, don't require 02 during the day, but was carrying a 5# Ever Go Mini with me. I didn't use the concentrator in the building or the parking lot. I just was carrying it. I'd had my picture taken, and filled out the forms when she asked about the concentrator. I said I'd had surgery, and it was cold outside. I said I don't require oxygen, but had surgery and was carrying it. I was not confused, or not following directions! Part of the form asked if I'd lost consciousness from various illness, including lung disease. I filled it out as no which was the truth!
She told me they have a right to determine if somebody is impaired if they see them carrying a concentrator. I guess the person doesn't actually even have to use it. I explained she was accusing me of lying on the DMV forms, and asked if it was even legal to require I have a doctor verify my condition under those circumstances. She whispered into the phone to her supervisor (or somebody), and said it was.
I have to go to the doctor now, and have all this pulmonary information filled in by him.
Anybody experience this problem. I had no idea it is very suspicious to have an oxygen concentrator with you. They didn't call the Sheriff to have me arrested, or take my license away.
What do you think about this. Be careful at the DMV!
