Why is it legal for police to give out Name, DOB, SSN, Height, Weight, eye/hair color, and Address over police radios? Anyone with a scanner can collect a lot of personal information just from one traffic stop. How can this be allowed?

Well, if people would carry a valid form of ID the polce would have no need to run personal info. They only do that when the only way to ID a suspect is by SSN or name/DOB. When a drivers license is used all that is broadcasted is name and license number. With cruisers being equipped with computers, info is ran over the air much less than in the past.
