Special DUI license plate bill defeated

California DUI attorney news

Repeat drunk drivers on the east coast won't have to worry about what's been labeled as the new "Scarlett Letter," DUI.

A panel of house members has rejected a proposal to require special license plates for repeat DUI - drunk drivers.

It would have meant Maryland people convicted of three or more impaired driving charges would get special $500 license tags that included the letters DUI. Offenders would have been required to use the special tags for five years.
