I was all set to say, what's wrong with America, but the state I live in has some SERIOUS issues. How so? Maybe all states have the same issues and I'm just picking on mine, but I don't know. It turns out mine is worse than some others, but it's bad everywhere.
The Drivers Privacy Protection Act is a federal law that makes it illegal for the DMV in your state to give out your information. BUT!!!!! That information is available other ways. Court records and voting records, in general are available. It's appallingly easy to get all your information, right up to your address and birth date.
