Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Members of Mothers Against Drunk Driving were at the State House Wednesday to support Emma's Law.
The bill requires all repeat DUI offenders convicted of a first offense and anyone who had a blood-alcohol content of 0.12 percent or higher to put an ignition interlock on their vehicle for at least six months.
They'd be required to exhale into the devices, and if the device detects alcohol above a certain level, the car won't start.
The bill is named after 6-year-old Emma Longstreet, who was killed by a driver police say was drunk last year.
Emma's father, David Longstreet, is hoping the bill passes so that it will help prevent future tragedies.
The bill has passed the House and now heads to the Senate.
