RIGHT TO TRAVEL vs PRIVILEGE TO DRIVE (U.S.)
The Law is clear, traveling on the public highways is a right devoid of any statuary obligations, need of licenses or permits, or any other form of permission from the state.
“The navigable waters leading into the Mississippi and St. Lawrence,*and the carrying places between the same, shall be common highways and forever free, as well to the inhabitants of the said territory as to the citizens of the United States, and those of any other States that may be admitted into the confederacy, without any tax, impost, or duty therefor.” [Northwest Ordinances, Article 4]
“Highways are for the use of the traveling public, and all have the right to use them in a reasonable and proper manner; the use thereof is an inalienable right of every citizen.” Escobedo vs. State 35 C2d 870 in 8 Cal Jur 3d p.27
