Currently, a blood alcohol content level of .08 is considered drunk driving, but the NTSB wants to lower it to .05.

 

Lt. Chris Carney with the Bend Police Department appaulds the move.

 

"First, it sends a really great message of the importance of getting imparied drivers off the road.  We consistently have 17-thouand people die on roads from impaired drivers.  It's down to 10-thousand people dying from impaired drivers."

 

Lt. Carney thinks it's unlikely the blood alcohol content level will be lowered because of resistance from bar and restaurant owners who feel it would hurt business.

 

Thirty years ago, 20-thosuand people died on roads from drunk driving.  In recent years, that's been cut in half.
