Would biometric ID cards be more dangerous than the government would like us to think?

Like the Mercedes owner who had his car stolen, along with his finger to unlock his sophisticated security system:

I don't like the idea of biometric ID cards - especially when they aren't necessarily going to be any use... in the same way "chip and pin" was supposed to cut out credit card fraud... but isn't it easier to shoulder surf someone entering a pin number, then demand their card, than it is to demand a card, and get enough practice to copy the signature remotely accurate by the time the owner reports it stolen???
