New DUI limit could drop to 0.05 percent

The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) is urging states to lower the legal blood-alcohol content limit for drunk driving from 0.08 percent to 0.05 percent. The move, which would bring the nation into line with most other nations' guidelines, is likely to significantly reduce the number of roadway deaths, according to driving experts. To put the new limit in perspective, 120-pound female Kansas drivers would be considered impaired after consuming a single drink; larger men might be able to consume two beverages before reaching the limit.
