Australian State Considers Lowering BAC to .02 Percent

Freitag 19. März 2010 von htm

Drivers in Norway and Sweden caught behind the wheel with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) higher than .02 percent can face drunk-driving charges, and now the Australian state of Queensland, where it currently is .05 percent, is considering a similar standard. Officials said research shows that such a move could cut road deaths by 11 percent. The AAP reported March 15 that Australia’s prime minister said the proposal should be considered nationally, and some public-health experts said the change was needed to cut highway deaths and send the message that drunk driving would not be tolerated.
