Default Freedom passes unchecked

"Richard J." typed

All the driver needs to do is to ask to see the photocard. The Freedom
Pass is not valid unless the photocard is carried with it and bears the
same name as the pass. Drivers should not, in my view, get involved in
questioning passengers about their disabilities.

The passholder's doctor has to fill a complex form to allow a Freedom
Pass to be issued.

Forgery or theft are beyond a driver's job to detect, but checking
Photocards is simple enough.
