A Vermont bill would bring emoji license plates to the US

  A Vermont bill would bring emoji license plates to the US With their ability to add a dash of color and whimsy to a text message, emoji have become an indispensable part of our online interactions. Thanks to a new piece of proposed legislation introduced last week in the Vermont House of Representatives, they could soon start making state license plates more colorful as well. The bill, introduced by Democrat Rebecca White, would allow drivers to add one of six emoji to their license plates. The pictographs would be in addition to whatever combination of letters and numbers the state's Commissioner of Motor Vehicles assigns to a car or a driver picks for themselves.

Vermont State Police arrested a man last month who was allegedly driving drunk — up a ski 24. There, they were told a man was trying to drive out of a parking lot and up the slopes . “ He got a couple of hundred feet up the terrain park and turned around,” Craig Moulton of Black Line Tavern

Frederick Brechter, 59, of Shelter Island, was arrested by Vermont State troopers around 11 p.m. January 24 after he attempted to drive a car from the parking area of Magic Mountain in Londonderry onto the ski slopes, a news release said.

The troopers who responded said the driver appeared to be impaired and continued to show signs of impairment when he was given a sobriety test.

Brechter was arrested and charged with DUI. He is scheduled to appear in Windham County Superior Court on March 17, the release said.

CNN has reached out to Brechter for comment. It is unclear if he has legal representation.
