Oklahoma Law Would Ban People With DUIs From Drinking Alcohol

A new proposal to restrict people from buying or consuming alcohol if they’ve been convicted of a DUI could make Oklahoma the toughest state in the country on drunk driving.


The bill, written by Oklahoma state Sen. Patrick Anderson (R), would allow courts to order a person to abstain from drinking alcohol for a period of time of the court’s choosing. The typical punishment for a first-time DUI conviction in most states is a fine and/or a suspension or revocation of one’s driver’s license. Under the proposed Oklahoma law, a convicted drunk driver would instead exchange his license for a new piece of identification marked “alcohol restricted.”
