    Does your state have different color license plates for people who have been convicted of either DUI or DWI.

    I guess I think I like the idea....I think

    Ohio does. I forget what qualifies you to earn one, but they are an ugly shade of yellow with red lettering.

    Mm...not sure how I feel about that one. Does the person that made 1 bad choice get the same color plate as the person that's done prison time for mulitiple DUIs? Can we expand this to registered sex offenders, people that have committed felonies, etc? Discuss!

    I think they should have the persons BAC as the number, and their intials for the letters. ie: .12-jao

    Cab we get one for thieves as well, I'd like to spot them in a crowd so I know to keep my stuff secured. And sexual predators....they definitely need plates.

    If you are going to hand out scarlet letters, lets hand em out.

    What will this realistically accomplish? To often, ideas are proposed that sound like "good, common sense ideas", but after analysis, are not very good, and are often bad.

    By comparison, what is the good of making a 36 y/o man register as a sex offender because he was convicted at age 18 for having sex with his 16 y/o girlfriend?

    I ask this because I had sex with my 16 y/o girlfriend when I was 18. It was legal in Alabama, but over the border in Florida, it would have been a felony.

    Had our first time (in Alabama) taken place two weeks earlier, it would have been a felony. She had just turned 16.

    I believe the correct term is, "license plates of color." HH

    it has to be the family's only car and way for the "injured spouse" of the offender to get to work....

    Yes, great idea. We should all have government implanted microchips, too, so people can know just by walking past you what crimes you've ever committed. Naturally, it'd be great if the government could track everyone, too.

    Personally, I'd prefer we just permanently revoke their driver's license on the first offense, and shoot them if they are caught at it a second time. But I'll settle for the plate on the first offense and shooting them the second time. Realize my viewpoint is due to the multiple skull fractures, subdural hematomas, etc., that one drunk driver managed to inflict on me.

    Minnesota has them. Get them after your second dwi within 10 years. Called 'Whiskey plates'. Every car you drive has to have them. Different color and start with a W.

    Idk if it allows cops to pull you over without reason or not...that's the rumor.

    So, the wife and kids have to have "whiskey plates" on their cars also...or are you forbidden from driving other cars in the household? HH
