Advocates call for reducing legal BAC limit

New York's blood alcohol concentration limit of .08 percent is identical to that of 48 other states and the District of Columbia. However, Utah has passed new regulations that lower the legal limit to .05 percent, a significant reduction.

Every day, an average of 29 people lose their lives in car crashes connected to drunk driving with costs rising to over $44 billion annually.
