HARRISONBURG -- You may want to reconsider that next drink when you're out with friends.
New DUI laws are soon to come into effect in the Commonwealth. The new law says when a driver gets pulled over while drunk, he or she will have to install a breathalyzer in their car.
If you would blow more than a .02 blood alcohol content level, your car won't start. If you're pulled over a second time, you may go to jail for a year.
"We're always out looking for DUI's every night. Whether we catch fewer, that would be great. With this new law maybe hopefully it will prevent people from driving while intoxicated," said Harrisonburg Police Corporal Phillip Read.
The new law will begin July 1.
