alphadogg contributes this snippet from Network World: “If you get busted for drunk driving in Montgomery County, Texas, this holiday season, your neighbors may hear about it on Twitter. That’s because the local district attorney’s office has decided to publish the names of those charged with driving while intoxicated between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. County Vehicular Crimes Prosecutor Warren Diepraam came up with the idea as a way of discouraging residents from getting behind the wheel while drunk. ‘It’s not a magic bullet that’s going to end DWIs, but it’s something to make people think twice before they get behind the wheel of a car and drive while they’re intoxicated,’ he said.”
