Good news, roads could be getting safer soon! The National Transportation and Safety Board are recommending that the country drop the legal alcohol limit for driving to .05%
Many other countries in the world already operate under this rule and one that the board hopes will curb drunk driving in the US. Each state would have to individually adopt the new limit which takes quite a bit of time to accomplish.
The new limit would mean an 180 lb man could only have a couple drinks in an hour, unlike 4 which is possible under the current limit.
In my opinion, I think this is a great idea. I had a family member die in a drunk-driving accident that may have been prevented if this limit was enforced.
