    Such a plan raises all kinds of legal issues. I think stiffer penalties would be better.

    Not sure. It would be nice to know who they're since they clearly are being a danger to the public. But I think they should take their car and for awhile and they can take public transportation.

    What legal issues? ANything that goes to court if by an adult is public record. Maybe if these people were embarrassed by there peers they would think twice before making such a poor decision.

    I used to live in a small community where they had a serious problem with DUI, the local paper started publishing a column that listed all the DUIs. Well, when your name is in the paper and everyone knows......That column shrank until it became a weekly!

    I'm not sure about this. In a way I think it'd be a good idea. But on the other hand, I personally wouldn't care to ever look at it to see who gets DUI's. In our newspaper here they stick the DUI's in the "sirens" section so we can see them. But no one really cares...

    They also should have special colored tags too.

    I don't drink at all, but i still think that that is an invasion of privacy that really doesn't serve much of a purpose...It's not like you will be able to tell who is on the road anyway. You aren't going to be trying to match tags to names at stop lights. It's just useless information. Maybe having a symbol on there tag for a certain number of years following a drunk driving conviction would make more since. Like suspended DL for a year, then marked tag for another year after that. Not sure if that would be right either, but at least in makes a little more since because you would know to be careful when sharing the road with a car that had that specific marking on the tag.

    Yeah, I don't really understand the point. If they got a DUI, don't most states suspend their license. What are people going to do, point and laugh?

    I agree with Audrey81. Invasion of privacy. I'm not sure what good it would do since you can't tell who is on the road, unless you know who the person is.
