Will the legal limit for DUI charges get even more strict?

Previous posts here have discussed the ramifications for a person charged with driving while intoxicated.

Breathalyzer results thrown out when officer gave poor direction

Numerous posts in this blog have discussed the severity of DUI charges and the potentially lifelong impacts they can have on the accused and convicted. However, other posts have also discussed that defense attorneys are often able to negotiate a better outcome for the defendant based on the details surrounding the traffic stop, search and seizure or more. That is exactly what has happened in a South Carolina case that ultimately resulted in throwing out the Breathalyzer test results in a DUI case.
