California Town Considers Posting Names of Drunk Drivers Online

The community of Huntington Beach, considered a suburb of Los Angeles, is considering posting the names of suspected drivers online. The names would be listed on the website of the police department.

According to a member of the police department, the goal is not to create "a wall of shame," but to show residents of Huntington Beach that the police are actively policing DUI offenders. A local newspaper had been publishing the names, but stopped in December, which may have led to the police department’s interest in doing so. In addition, the community allegedly has approximately 12 alcohol related deaths each year.
