Sheriff: Lower DUI Limit Would Save Lives


Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson says a proposal to lower the blood alcohol limit for drunk driving would save lives… but warns there could also be a cost. 

 

The National Transportation Safety Board is recommending that states impose a point-oh-five DUI limit, instead of the current point-oh-eight.  Williamson thinks that would mean fewer DUI deaths… but says it could also hurt bars, restaurants and other liquor establishments. 

 

And the sheriff says more lives would be saved if the state cracked down harder on distracted driving, instead of focusing even more on drunk driving.
