Maryland Bill Aims To Put ‘DUI’ On License Plates
This is the part that was really distubing…

Taylor considers the DUI plate an ounce of prevention because it gives police a license to stop the driver at any time.
“(The bill) will allow (police) to, without probable cause, pull them over and check” their driving records, Taylor said.
Defense attorneys have raised questions as to the specter of possible civil rights and other violations.

So, if you are convicted of a crime, the police can now stop you at ANY TIME and “check” their driving records, just for the heck of it. Maybe we should start a pool to see how fast the Federal court system will strike it down based on Fourth Amendment guidelines.
