An Act requiring specially marked licenses for repeat offenders who drive under the influence of intoxicating liquors or controlled substances.
 

              Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
 

              Subdivision (1) of section 24 of chapter 90 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2010 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following paragraph:—

              (i) Any license or right to operate that is issued to a person whose license or right to operate has been previously suspended or revoked under this subdivision shall be distinctively and permanently marked with a red stripe prominently displayed across the face of the license. The cost of the specially marked license shall be borne by the licensee. After expiration of 24 months from issuance or reinstatement of the license under this paragraph if the person's license is not otherwise under suspension or revocation, and if the person is not convicted of and does not receive a continuance without a finding for any subsequent violation of this subdivision during the 24-month period, the person may obtain a new license without the distinctive markings upon payment of any fees required for issuance of a new license.
