P.E.I. drunk drivers' vehicles could get special plates - Prince Edward Island - CBC News
I'm not personally so interested in the shaming aspect of the idea, but I kind of like the prospect of being able to identify a repeat-risk drunk driver while I'm on the roads. Have you ever seen someone swerve while in front of you and yell, "Jesus! Is he drunk or something??" Now for the first time (at least if you live on Prince Edward Island) you'll get to think, "Yep! Might be!" and then put a nice and cozy distance between you and that driver.Drunk drivers on P.E.I. may soon have to carry a reminder, and an advertisement, of their crime on the backs of their vehicles.
Transportation Minister Robert Vessey is floating the idea of distinctive plates for drivers enrolled in the ignition interlock program.
"A lot of people have a lot of pride in themselves and an impaired driver sometimes, if they're going to be identified, might make them think twice before they jump behind the wheel of a vehicle while impaired," said Vessey.
Do you think repeat DUI offenders should be easily identifiable on the roads (besides how they're driving, of course)?
