The Huntington Beach City Council is being urged to approve a proposed motion to use Facebook to shame those with DUI records, according to the Independent. One Councilman wants to reinvigorate a previously ditched plan for "the Police Department to put up information and the booking photographs of those arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving who has been 'arrested for drunk driving multiple times,'" also known as "habitual drunk drivers." The council will vote on this issue on Monday, January 17th.
