Science Panel Backs Call For Lower BAC Limits Across The US!

The National Transportation Safety Board says the way to reduce the number of drunk driving fatalities is to reduce the BAC limit from .08 to .05.

 

If you follow The Kronzek Firm’s blog here on WinDrunkDriving.com, then you’ll remember our two-part article a little while ago addressing the issue of lowered BAC limits as a possible solution to drunk driving fatalities.

Are You Allowed to Refuse a Field Sobriety Test in Michigan?

Do you have to get out and do the field sobriety test when you’re pulled over for a DUI?

The holidays can be really dangerous, from a driver’s point of view!

 

When Andy Williams wrote about Christmas in his famous carol, he said there’d be “parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting, and caroling out in the snow!” What he didn’t mention in that glorious list, is the significant rise in drunk driving incidents every year at Christmas time. Why? Well, there isn’t much that rhymes with “drunk driving.” And besides, it was supposed to be a happy song!
