The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has its own “Most Wanted” list, and on it the federal agency wishes to makes highways “safer” by making it ever more possible to create lawbreakers out of responsible drinkers.
That is, the NTSB greatly desires “lowering the legal alcohol limit for U.S. drivers from .08 percent blood alcohol concentration (BAC) to .05 percent.”
Basically, a BAC that low would create definitional drunkards out of many men who have two drinks at dinner, and some women who had just one.
Such a ridiculously strict legal BAC limit would also create a broadening of the important campaign against those other DWIs, such as Driving With an Inhaler or Driving With Influenza.
