Stiffer penalties for driving under the influence have gone into effect, and the S.C. Highway Patrol is planning heightened DUI enforcement.
The new laws went into effect Tuesday.
They include higher fines for DUI offenders, harsher punishments for repeat offenders and a six-month driver’s license suspension for offenders who refuse to take a breath-analysis test after their arrest.
First-time offenders will also have to complete an alcohol and drug-treatment program upon conviction, said Lance Cpl. Jeff Gaskin of the Highway Patrol.
