Impaired drivers in Manitoba will now have to deal with tougher penalties for getting caught.
Starting today, people with a blood alcohol content between .05 and .08 will now have a three day suspension, with the suspension running for seven days if someone under 16 is in the vehicle.
 
Also anyone convicted of impaired driving will be required to have interlock systems installed in their vehicles so the vehicle won't start until a breath sample is taken.
 
Provincial Justice Minister Gord Mackintosh says they want to send a message that high risk behaviors behind the wheel will be punished.
