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.

Offenders convicted for a second time must use it for 2 years.Read more: http://www.counton2.com/story/26796958/emmas-law-cutting-down-dui-deaths-with-car-breathalyzer
