A law that will go into effect Tuesday, Sept. 30, states drivers with prior DUI offenses who are suspected of driving while drunk must take a breath-alcohol test. If drivers refuse, authorities can take them to get a mandatory blood or urine test. The law intends to help prosecutors in cases of repeat offenders and deter drunken driving. Repeat offenders used to be able to refuse a breath-alcohol test. www.DaytonDailyNews.com
