Huntington Beach City Council Stops Plan to Post DUI Photos on Facebook

The goal was to shame drivers suspected of drunk driving in Huntington Beach.

FacebookThe Huntington Beach city council has voted against a proposal that would have allowed the police department to post mug shots on Facebook of those arrested for DUI in California. One council member had recommended posting the names and faces of repeat drunk driving offenders on the social networking site in an effort to shame them into changing their behavior. His original goal was to post photos of all accused of DUI in California.

The police opposed the plan, saying it would alienate the area residents. Council members voting against the idea said it would damage the city.
