The Scarlet Letter (cont’d)

Posted by Lawrence Taylor on November 22nd, 2005

Yesterday’s post about the proposed “Scarlet Letter” law in Florida was intended as satirical humor.  But…..Ohio already requires yellow plates with red letters for those convicted of DUI. 

Minnesota and Michigan require such plates as well, although Minnesota’s supreme court held that stopping cars with such plates without probable cause (as in the proposed Florida law) was unconstitutional.

Humorous, but no joke.
