NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee lawmakers are considering more restrictions to keep repeat drunk drivers off the roads.

A bill calls for denying the sale of alcohol to anyone convicted of a third DUI offense in Tennessee.

 

The words “No Alcohol Sales” would be stamped on their ID.

 

“Currently what we’ve done is not working, so with this extra step so maybe if they get alcohol somebody else will drive and get it so they won’t be on the road driving,” said freshman Republican Representative John Holsclaw from Johnson City who sponsored the bill.

 

The bill still needs legislative approval.
