States are Forcing Bad Drivers to Display ‘Special License Plates’

Published on February 25, 2016 by   ·   No Comments

Since 1990 Minnesota has FORCED bad drivers to pay an extra $50 dollars to display “Whiskey” or “Special Registration” plates.

The U.S. has stolen a page out of Nazi Germany’s playbook which forced Jews, political prisoners etc., to wear stars, triangles etc., in public.

Minnesota drivers are forced to display “special license plates” if they’re accused of…

“Whiskey” plates have unique characteristics that make them readily identifiable to law enforcement.  They are called whiskey plates because they start with the letter “W” and are followed by a second letter and 4 numerals.  It is a misdemeanor offense for anyone to drive a vehicle subject to plate impoundment without obtaining and displaying the whiskey plates (even if the driver has never been involved in a DWI incident).  If a driver owns or co-owns multiple vehicles, he must obtain whiskey plates on all vehicles that are to be driven during the impoundment period.

How long must these special license plates be on a vehicle?

Special registration plates issued must be displayed for at least one year from the date of incident. In some cases, special registration plates must be displayed for much longer than one year (multiple DWI offenses and other driving without license violations.)

Can Minnesota police lawfully stop a vehicle with whiskey plates for no reason?

No, but whiskey plates can be one factor, but not the sole factor, used by law enforcement to establish “reasonable suspicion of criminal activity,” which is the constitutional standard justifying a lawful traffic stop.

These plates are a magnet for highway patrol,” Pickwick County judge John Adkins told the Toledo Blade.
