NTSB pushes ignition interlock devices for first time offenders

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is meeting to review a recommendation that all states require convicted first-time drunken driving offenders to use an ignition interlock device in their car thereafter. The measure is already required in 17 states where the dashboard breath test prevents the car's ignition should the would-be driver have too high of an alcohol concentration on their breath.

South Carolina proposal for interlock devices for DUI offenders

Currently in South Carolina, if a person is convicted for a second time of driving under the influence -- after first following some mandates -- an ignition interlock device is install in their car. This device essentially makes it impossible for a driver to start their car if the breath test type of machine registers a certain blood alcohol content percentage on the driver's breath.

Bill wants to restrict officers' discretions in DUI arrests

In South Carolina, even when a person is well under the legal driving limit, there have still been a number of cases where that person is arrested and charged with driving under the influence. To try and limit the number of people arrested and charged with drunk driving -- who are well under the legal limit -- a bill was pre-filed in the South Carolina House. This bill would make it so a person could not be charged with DUI if their blood alcohol content is below 0.05 percent.

South Carolina woman sleeping in car charged with DUI

A South Carolina woman, who is a parent teacher organization official, was recently accused of driving under the influence. However, even though she was charged with DUI, an officer never saw her actually driving a vehicle, she never admitted to driving a vehicle and it doesn't appear anyone else saw her driving either.
