Bill Would Label DUI-vers w/Z Mark

A bill in the Washington Legislature would require drivers with a drunk driving history to have license plates indicating their DUI record. The license plates would end with the letter “Z” and the drivers would also be required to pay an extra $100 for them. "It provides a tool for law enforcement … just to be aware that the car is registered to someone with a DUI conviction and to provide a little extra scrutiny,” said Representative Norma Smith of Clinton/KGW.

Question: Would you support legislation like this that would require drivers with a drunk driving history to have license plates indicating their DUI record?
