Utah’s New DUI Law Drawing National Attention
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah’s new D.U.I. law is making national headlines for being the strictest in the country.
It kicks in Dec. 30, and will set the legal blood alcohol limit at .05. for people driving. The national limit is .08.
USA Today and CNN have both reported that other states are closely watching Utah to see how it goes.
In the United States alone, more than 10,000 people were killed in alcohol-related road deaths. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the .05 limit amounts to roughly three alcoholic drinks. At this point, the CDC said drivers experience reduced coordination, difficulty steering, and reduced response to emergency situations.
