Bill proposed to drop Utah DUI threshold to strictest level in nation


From Las Vegas Sun News

SALT LAKE CITY — A state lawmaker wants to make Utah’s DUI threshold the strictest in the nation by lowering the blood-alcohol content limit to 0.05 percent. Though state numbers show alcohol-related driving deaths and DUI arrests are down in Utah, Rep. Norman Thurston said there’s more to be done. The Provo Republican plans to introduce legislation lowering the BAC limit from 0.08 to 0.05 when Utah’s lawmakers return for their annual session later this month.
