The latest thing being discussed by the government is reducing the DUI threshold to .05!
For a lot of people, one drink can put you at .05!
Excerpting the article:
The lower alcohol content threshold was one of nearly 20 recommendations aimed at reducing drunken driving made by the board, including that states adopt measures to ensure more widespread use of use of alcohol ignition interlock devices. Those require a driver to breathe into a tube, much like the breathalyzers police ask suspected drunken drivers to use.
The board has previously recommended states require all convicted drunken drivers install the interlock devices in their vehicles as a condition to resume driving. Currently, 17 states and two California counties require all convicted drivers use the devices.
However, only about a quarter of drivers ordered to use the devices actually end up doing so, NTSB said. Drivers use a variety of ways to evade using the devices, including claiming they won't drive at all or don't own a vehicle and therefore don't need the devices, staff said.
This seems to us like the government looking for more fines and income... what do you think?
Meantime - take a look at your Roseville Auto Insurance or Rocklin Auto Insurance and imagine what will happen if a ton more people start getting DUI's!
