September 1st not only marks the first day of a new month, but the first day some new Louisiana laws take effect. One in particular affects motorists who choose to drink and drive.

Starting Monday, anyone who refuses to take a breathalyzer test may lose their license for a year.

That penalty is now doubled from the previous law, where motorists who refused would only lose their license for six months.

TV10 would like to know if you agree with the new breathalyzer law, to let us know participate in our online poll.
