State Senator Looking To Tighten Part Of Drunk Driving Laws

(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota Republican Senator Brent Hoffman is taking aim at the state’s drunk-driving look-back period. There’s an exemption in place that any drunk-driving conviction more than ten years old can’t be considered when a motorist is charged with another drunk-driving arrest. Hoffman wants to eliminate that with a proposal to the 2024 legislative session that starts January 9th. It would remove the ten-year reference from one part of state law, repeal entirely another section of state law and make other changes in an effort to stiffen consequences of drunk driving cases.
