It'd be easy to spot those convicted of drunken-driven offenses under a measure proposed by one Arkansas lawmaker: Hot pink license plates, starting with the letters DWI, would be issued to repeat offenders.

The proposal, by Rep. Pam Adcock, D-Little Rock, would require anyone convicted three or more times of driving while intoxicated to display the pink DWI license plates on his or her car.

"The DWI license plate shall be a bright pink color that is easily distinguishable from other license plates issued in the state," the bill says.

The bill affects drivers who also are required to have ignition interlock devices installed in their vehicles. Such devices test for alcohol on a driver's breath before the vehicle can be started.

The hot pink DWI plates would be required as long as the ignition interlock device is required, according to the measure.

The bill has been assigned to the House Transportation Committee, which is scheduled to consider it next week.
