Reasons People are Giving for Supporting the Move to Changes the Drunk Driving Laws in Texas
According to a recent poll many people in Texas want the government to make the drunk driving laws stricter. The poll was undertaken by the Texas Medical Center Health Policy Institute that showed that 54% of the citizens are dissatisfied with the current legal blood alcohol concentration limit of .08 and want it lowered to .05. The poll showed that 46% of the people want the government to ban the use of alcohol for people who are driving. Here are the justifications for making the drunk driving laws in Texas more strict.
In January 2018 Utah made it official the enforcement of the .05 blood alcohol concentration limit. Texas may be looking to follow in the steps of Utah in lowering the BAC limit law from .08 to .05. To come up with the statistic that 54% of people in Texas are for the lowering of the BAC 1000 people from Texas and another 3000 from other states where interviewed. By taking a poll on this high number the results shows a factual representation of the opinions of the entire population in Texas according to Dr. Garson.
The differences on how people react when drunk is the other reason why many people are advocating for the BAC to be reduced to zero. Professionals argue that drinking the same quantity of alcohol does not mean that people will have the same reactions. You may find a person who is within the required BAC limit of .08 causing accidents despite adhering to the laws. Due to these reasons many people are pushing to change the BAC limit from .08 in Texas to zero to enhance road safety in the area.
The other reason people are giving for supporting the move to lower the BAC limit is to reduce the number of road accidents in Texas. The risk of a car crash is magnified when the driver is drunk. Thus, why many people in Texas are suggesting the lowering of the BAC limit to reduce road accidents according to the polls.
It is normal to wonder if the changing of the BAC limit in Texas from .08 to .05 will have any positive results in both the short and long term. It is also vital to learn more about what it means on having a blood alcohol concentration of .05. You should aim to see the number of wine glass or bottles of beer you will drink to reach this .05 limit.
