DUI convicts could be restricted from alcohol
A member of the Tennessee House wants to make it more difficult for DUI offenders to buy alcohol by marking their driver’s license. State Representative Bud Hulsey says he will propose the legislation as a the House begins a new session this week. Hulsey wants to prohibit convicted DUI offenders from buying alcohol for three years. And to identify such offenders he wants a red strip placed on their license. And there would be a misdemeanor charge for anyone who sells alcohol to that DUI offender. One liquor store owner said he wants to help stop drunk driving, but it will be tough to support the bill. Hulsey says his motivation stems from the death of his friend, Former Representative Mike Locke who was killed by a drunk driver who hit Locke while he was placing signs for Hulsey’s campaign.
