Party Plates

In some states drunk drivers who are able to get driving priviledges some times are required to purchase what are euphemistically called "party plates."

Sometimes, some of these people never learn.

This is from the police blotter of a small town in northeast Ohio. 

"While making a traffic stop at 9:02 p.m. June 1 at the North Royalton Speedway station, a cop observed a man walk past his patrol car carrying a six-pack. The man got into the driver’s side of a white Mercury displaying yellow OVI tags. The driver, who is under suspension with limited privileges, stated he was on his way home from an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and stopped to get gas, and apparently some beer. The man was issued a citation for driving under an OVI suspension and will appear in court."
Usually when we encounter the repeat offender it is in the context of ghastly tragedies.
