To easily identify drivers under the age of 21, the state of Ohio has decided to take on a new shape. Beginning today new vertical driver's license and identification cards will be issued. The change, that stems from legislation in the 2001 Budget Bill, is part of a statewide crack down on certain underage behaviors. The main reason for the vertical licenses is to alert proper establishments of sale to minors under 18 for tobacco use or under 21 for alcohol consumption. Republican state Senator Doug White suggested the vertical license after at least 10 states, including Kentucky and Pennsylvania, adopted it.
