Baruch Feigenbaum (MCRP ’10) argues lowering legal limit will not decrease drunk driving deaths

External News Details

In a three person op-ed debate about lowering the Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit from .08 to .05, Baruch Feigenbaum (MCRP ’10) writes focusing on reckless driving rather than drunk driving could save more lives. "Studies indicate that any number of things — talking on a cell phone, eating, adjusting the radio or having kids in the car — can make it more likely for a driver to have an accident than having a 0.08 BAC. When the BAC was last lowered, from 0.08 to 0.10, alcohol-related traffic fatalities actually increased," says Feigenbaum.
