Even Arkansas realizes enough is enough by refusing to make folks convicted of DWI place special license plates on their cars

MSNBC reported that an Arkansas lawmaker, Rep. Pam Adcock, introduced a bill that would make folks that were convicted of DWI place hot pink license plates, starting with the letters DWI, on their vehicle

“The DWI license plate shall be a bright pink color that is easily distinguishable from other license plates issued in the state,” the bill said.

The bill was to affect drivers who were required to have ignition interlock devices installed in their vehicles.

After considering the bill, the Arkansas House Transportation Committee voted down a proposal to require drivers convicted of DWI to have a pink license plate on their vehicles.

Some House committee members felt that the pink DUI plates might embarrass other family members who might need to drive the car.
