An Alaskan state legislator has crafted a bill that would require a mark to be placed on driver’s licenses and state-issued identification cards of some DWI offenders. House Bill 14 would apply to those convicted of drunk driving whose court mandated terms of probation or parole prohibit consumption of alcohol.
Representative Harry Crawford said, “We are working to keep Alaskan families safe from drunk drivers. This law will prevent carnage caused by drunk drivers by stopping repeat offenders from buying alcohol.”
Crawford’s bill was unanimously approved by the Alaska House of Representatives and it has been rolled into an omnibus crime bill being prepared by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
