DUI Law Changes

John Price discusses recent changes in South Carolina DUI Laws on local radio station 105.5 The Bridge. The proposed law – which has cut drunk-driving deaths by 15 percent in the states that have passed it – slowly is advancing in the House and Senate.

The bill aims to address a part of South Carolina’s DUI law that allows defendants charged with drunk driving to get back on the road within days. But it could face opposition from lawmakers concerned ignition-interlock devices are expensive, especially for drivers who later are exonerated.

Right now, judges are required to order all repeat offenders and first-time offenders with a bac of .15 or greater to install an ignition interlock. Governor Henry Mcmaster wants to see something on his desk so he can sign it into law.
