My Turn: People should not drive while impaired

The Feb. 27 “My Turn” column opposing legislation to lower the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit in the state to .05% comes from an organization that is funded by members of the alcohol and hospitality industry and has never supported lower BAC limits. Shortly before the Senate passage of Senate Bill (SB) 2234 to enact a 0.05% BAC limit statewide, the same organization used the same misdirected scare tactics it employed when it opposed nationwide efforts to lower BAC from 0.10 to 0.08% in the late 1990s.
