I frequently check out Lawrence Taylor’s DUI blog for info on trends and tips on trying these tough, tough cases.  Check out his recent post that examines where we are headed with respect to drinking and driving: are we likely to take the "legal limit" even lower. Currently the magic number is .08% – but will that number go even lower? The law is intended to reduce the number of intoxicated drivers on the road. Lowering the blood alcohol level even lower serves only to trap drivers who may well not be intoxicated at all. Check out Taylor’s post as he discusses this.
