Legislation Would Required Special Plates For DUI Offenders

Comments (0)

The state Congress in Tennessee is considering a bill that would require a person convicted of DUI to purchase a special license plate. Currently, the bill is before the House Judiciary Committee, which delayed action on the proposal on April 29.

The committee decided to delay the measure, which is sponsored by Rep. Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown), until May 6.

Under the proposed measure, a judge would be required to order a person found guilty of DUI to obtain a yellow license plate containing the words “DUI OFFENDER” in red letters. The plate would remain on the person’s vehicle for at least one year.

A companion bill has stalled in the Senate Judiciary Committee since February.
