New Mississippi DUI Law Takes Effect

JACKSON, Miss. – A new state law went into effect Wednesday requiring motorists with more than one DUI to have an interlock system installed in their car at their own expense. The device will not allow the vehicle to start until the driver takes a Breathalyzer test.

The law allows first time offenders to have an interlock system installed instead of having a suspended license for 90 days. Repeat offenders have to have the device for three years, and they also have to have a restricted driver’s license.

The law also allows for a first time DUI offense to be thrown out if a driver has had a clear record after five years.
