I'd rather see increased penalties for DUI before a .05 BAC law.

The valley has decent transit I suppose but Utah is a big state. Forget about anything past one pint or one glass of red with dinner. This is a kick in the balls to the food and beverage industry.
DHS makes a great point, if you are an idiot and get behind the wheel smashed, how about some real deterrence. In Maine and New Hampshire, I've been watching the news for this over the past .... 20 plus years, the going rate for killing someone while driving drunk is about 2 years in jail. And someone died! Paul Violette, former commissioner for the Maine Turnpike Authority was convicted of inappropriate use of gift cards and was sentenced to 3 1/2 years and restitution (IIRC), and no one died. Kill someone, but you were driving drunk, only 2 years. Does anyone else see the inequity in this? and the lack of deterrence?
Rhode Island has some pretty good billboards out right now "if you drive drunk or high and crash, don't tell me it's an accident " not sure how well they are informing but it's pointed.

prsboogie, in this day and age, if a drinker haven't arranged your ride home by the time they hit the bar, that's on the drinker. I kinda agree with that message. If you do everything it takes to cause the accident (like getting hammered and driving), that is no accident. Sure you didn't mean to do it, but you did everything to cause it.
Benski, I simply can't understand what you are saying, sorry.
