State Not Ready To Back Lower Blood Alcohol Content Level
The NTSB wants to lower the legal blood alcohol level from point-08 to point-05 but Henry Haupt, with the Illinois Secretary of State's Office, says it's too soon to say if they support the idea. Haupt points out that Illinois has been making major strides in getting drunk drivers off the road. In fact, MADD recently gave Illinois a top rating for its BAIID program, which requires drunk drivers to install an ignition interlock device on their car and blow into it before starting up. Drunk driving in Illinois has dropped by 22-percent since the program was implemented in 2009.
