Utah gets the First Mover award again in the DUI race. The state was the first to lower blood alcohol content (BAC) limits from 0.10 to 0.08 back in 1983, and now they are the first in the country to make the next dip, down to 0.05. Will this change things? Some are saying the only thing it will change is Utah’s public image.
0.05: Leading Edge or Bleeding Edge?
Utah state Rep. Norm Thurston, a Republican, sponsored the bill to lower the DUI limit to 0.05, which goes into effect on December 30, 2018.
