To Curb Drunk Driving, More States Consider the Alcohol in Two Drinks Enough to Get You Arrested

From a Wall Street Journal story by Jimmy Vielkind headlined “To Curb Drunk Driving, More States Consider .05 Limit on Blood Alcohol Level”:

ALBANY, N. Y.—Alisa McMorris totes a wagon filled with leaflets and a picture of her son Andrew, who was killed by a drunken driver in 2018, as she makes the rounds in the state capitol.

The 49-year-old Long Island woman, a member of the advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving, is pressing legislators to pass a new state law that she says could decrease such tragedies: lowering the legal threshold for what constitutes driving under the influence of alcohol.
