In These Three States, DUI Convicts Get Special License Plates
And you'll never guess what the locals call them...
Ohio is just one of three states in the US that has special license plates for people who have been convicted of driving while intoxicated.
According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Georgia and Minnesota can make you carry an extra letter in your plate number if you're convicted of a DUI. Ohio is the only state, however, with a completely different plate design for drunk drivers.
Instead of the nice red, white and blue plates issues to the good law abiding citizens of the buckeye state, DUI offenders in Ohio get a cringe-worthy red and yellow plate that can be seen from miles away.
And what do the locals call these modern-day scarlet letters? Party plates!
Here in Maine, we would call 'em "pahty plates," and it would be really interesting to see who gets one.
