If youíre planning a driving trip to Canada or Mexico, youíll need to pack more identification in the New Year, thanks to a new U.S. law.

Those who donít have a passport must carry a birth certificate plus government-issued photo ID, such as a driverís license or school ID for young students, to show at border inspection stations.
