Have You Ever Heard Of Minnesota “Whiskey Plates” On Cars?
I had never even heard of a Minnesota “Whiskey Plates”. It turns out that that is a good thing!
I was in a conversation with a friend of mine from Minnesota.
He talked about trying to buy a truck but was having problems because it had “Whiskey Plates”.
So I asked what does that mean?
According to the Leverson Budke website...
“Simply put, Minnesota Whiskey Plates are special license plates that replace your impounded regular plates after a DWI.
The impoundment order applies to the vehicle in which the DWI was committed even if the owner of the vehicle was not the driver.
If the owner of the vehicle was convicted of the DWI, that vehicle and any other vehicle he owns must display Minnesota Whiskey Plates during the period when the regular plates are impounded; which is usually a year.”
So, yeah...I guess it is a good thing that I've never had to learn the term “Whiskey Plates” the hard way.
