From personal experience, I think it should be .02 and NO open containers...stiff fines and lose of lisence. If you drink, take a cab,bus or have someone who is sober drive you.

Re: safer lower drunk driving test/ .02

I wonder...the people who set these alcohol limits, have they ever lost someone they love to a car accident that involved a drink driver. So many people have different tolerance levels that the limit should be targeted toward the people who have little tolerance. Lives should not be lost because someone was stupid and selfish enough to drink and drive. Just my opinion.

Re: safer lower drunk driving test/ .02

It is scary how many kids nowadays are driving drunk and think nothing of it. SO many kids I know do it almost every weekend and then talk about it like it is something to be proud of. I think the laws should be much stiffer.

Re: safer lower drunk driving test/ .02

Yeah, I think I heard somewhere that cell phones surpassed drunk driving in the leading cause of accidents.

Re: safer lower drunk driving test/ .02

I don't see how anyone can put "safer" and "drunk driving" in the same sentence. There is NO safe drunk driving, people.

If you can't abstain, which is understandable, after all, it IS New Year's Eve, but: how about a designated driver? A taxicab? Staying over at the host's house? Why risk hurting someone, or yourself.

I know from past experience that you can feel just a little buzz, but when you get in the car, and behind the wheel, it gets a little more difficult.

I agree about the cell phone thing, too. Many people I know use hands free phones in the car, it is a little better, but still a distraction..........
