One-drink limit: Feds pushing for lower DUI standards

Members of the National Transportation Safety Board are lobbying Virginia and other states to reduce the threshold for drunk driving to 0.05 from the current national standard of 0.08.

NTSB member Mark Rosekind made the pitch again Wednesday in New England, at a conference moderated by the area’s American Automobile Association. Rosekind make a similar presentation to Hampton Roads police officers at a Virginia Beach conference earlier this year.

Supporters say the tougher standard will save lives, but critics say it will turn casual and responsible drinkers into jailed criminals.
