California town may shame drunk drivers on Facebook

Huntington Beach, California is considering a new tactic against drunk driving: public shaming on Facebook.

After the idea was suggested Monday at a City Council meeting, the city's Police Department is looking into posting the names of suspected drunk drivers on Facebook.

The local newspaper has stopped publishing the listings of drunk drivers so the city council wants the Police Department to post the list on the city's Facebook page.

But will it work? Does anyone ever read the city's Facebook page?
