South Carolina DUI Law Is Harsh
South Carolina law deals with DUI offenders harshly. It is a criminal offense in South Carolina to drive a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, marijuana or other intoxicating substances to the extent that your ability to drive is jeopardized. It’s also a crime to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent.
A DUI conviction can result in significant penalties. For a first offense, you may face significant fines, suspension of your driver’s license and up to 30 days in jail. You may also have to complete an alcohol program and bear the financial burden of carrying additional insurance (SR-22 insurance) for up to 3 years.
