A proposed law in New York State would would force anyone convicted of driving while drunk three times in just five years to put special license plates on their cars. And police would be allowed to stop DWI tagged cars, without further cause. Opponents say it would stigmatize the drivers of the specially tagged cars. Supporters say that for repeat DWI offenders — that's the point.
