Drunk Driving Redux

Drunk Driving Redux

Last week, the National Transportation Safety Board recommended that all 50 states lower the legally permissible blood alcohol content for drivers.  The NTSB suggests that the legal BAC be reduced from the current level of .08 to .05 as part of an initiative to curtail drunken driving.  Drunk drivers account for about 1/3 of all highway deaths.  The NTSB believes that lowering the legal BAC rate to .05 would save over 500 lives annually.  This reduction would make a pretty significant impact on social drinking, and driving.  For example, a 180 pound man will reach .08 BAC after four drinks in an hour.  Of course, if you’re drinking more that 4 drinks in an hour, you should know better than to drive anyway. Don’t drink and drive!  Injured in an automobile accident?  Contact Colling Gilbert Wright for a free consultation about your legal rights.
