Bill would make Oregon second in nation to enact .05% DUII law

Utah on Sunday will become the first state to lower the limit for driving under the influence of alcohol from .08 to .05 percent.

Sen. Peter Courtney, D-Salem and president of the Oregon Senate, hopes Oregon becomes the second.

Courtney is gearing up to introduce a bill during the upcoming legislative session -- which starts Jan. 22 -- that would make it illegal for drivers to get behind the wheel with a blood alcohol content of .05 percent or greater.

“Alcohol is a deadly weapon,” Courtney said.

2. Might as well make it zero alcohol if you're doing that. That has to be about two beers

for a lot of people. No way that's even really drunk. I know I could pass both their field sobriety test and the county's driving test at that level. Really easy too.

It should be people that are actually too impaired to drive that are getting nailed. The best they can say is that level will deter people from even having one drink and driving.
