Emma’s Law Cutting Down DUI Deaths With Car Breathalyzer

GREENVILLE, S.C. –

There are drastic new changes to South Carolina’s DUI laws. Now, state officials are making sure they’re ready to hand down the new punishment to first time offenders.

It requires more drivers to use “ignition interlocks,” a breathalyzer designed to transform convicted DUI offenders into responsible drivers.

Under “Emma’s Law,” anyone convicted for the first time of driving under the influence with a blood-alcohol level over 0.15 must use the device for 6 months. Offenders convicted for a second time must use it for 2 years.
