About South Carolina drunk driving laws
Thanks to groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and the South Carolina Alcohol and Drug Safety Action Program (DAODAS), most drivers up and down the Sea Islands are well-aware of the dangers of driving under the influence. Drunk drivers can face thousands of dollars in fines and license suspensions for their first offense. Astonishingly, many of the state's drunken driving accidents are caused by repeat offenders.
Some legislative progress recently has been made in South Carolina. In 2014, the South Carolina House judiciary committee passed "Emma's Law," a bill that requires interlock ignition in the vehicles of DUI drivers with a blood alcohol content level of .15 or greater. The bill is named after Emma Longstreet, a 6-year-old girl who was killed by a repeat offender drunk driver in 2014. An ignition interlock device requires drivers to blow into a breathalyzer before starting the car. When alcohol is detected, the car won't start.
