These yellow tags are sort of an equivalent.
And an example of the hysteria surrounding this subject.
Look - there's a disgusting drunk who causes accidents and kills people!
Drunk driving causes less deaths then people on cell phones.
Wow. Public shaming works. Who’da thought it?
And yet, the vast majority of DUIs involve neither accidents nor deaths. Many don't even involve "drunkenness," at least not how most adults understand it.
“Drunk driving causes less deaths then people on cell phones.”
What are the statistics that back up your claim?
This was proposed in Virginia and thank goodness it’s dead.
“Wow. Public shaming works. Whoda thought it?”
Wow, time to go back to the scarlet A?
I’m agaiost the yellow plates, but I don’t believe this one unless you can pull up some real proof.
I’d be in favor of that. But then, I’m someone who managed to stay non-pregnant before marriage, so I guess I’m biased.
Where does it stop?
Look - there's a guy who talks on his phone while driving and kills people = blue license plate.
Look - there's a chick who puts on her makeup while driving and kills people = lavender license plate.
Look - there's a guy who yells at his kids while driving and kills people = red license plate.
And look, there's the wife of the guy who was drunk but stuck by him while he dried out because she believes in the sanctity of marriage and now has to drive a car with yellow license plates around even though she didn't do anything wrong.
“Id be in favor of that. But then, Im someone who managed to stay non-pregnant before marriage, so I guess Im biased.”
Well, congratulations, so has everybody in my family and their spouses (although every single one I know of made love with the future spouse before marriage; well, maybe not my parents, although I can’t say for sure). What exactly does that have to do with with the scarlet A — adultery?
Okay, so technically I’d put an F on fornicators, not an A. But “The Scarlet F,” you must admit, has far less cachet.
Drunk driving is listed way down the list for causes of accidents. Driver inattention is the number one reason. Everyone is on a cell phone these days.
You can got to the California Motor Vehicle site. I believe they have information on it their.
Hey, a couple months ago, Fraudoire was getting all hot about starting “random” drunk driving checkpoint things.
That bright idea crashed and burned good! The legislature wouldn’t even consider it...
