As Emma’s Law legislation gets closer to becoming law in South Carolina, there are still conflicting opinions on the restrictions within the bill. According to The Island Packet, many current legislators are calling for a lower BAC on Emma’s Law – the ignition interlock bill that focuses on first-time offenders in the state. As it stands today, the BAC limit is written at .15, which is almost two times the legal limit across the country. With a lower BAC on Emma’s Law, more DUI offenders will be ordered to install an ignition interlock device on their vehicles, eliminating the choice to drive drunk. As this bill continues to move forward in South Carolina, the lower BAC on Emma’s Law could save more lives and reduce the chances of being involved in a tragic, alcohol-related traffic accident.
