The Senate bill is expected to be signed by Governor Snyder, keeping Michigan in line with the other 49 states, all of which have .08 BAC levels relative to drunk driving.
According to testimony at the Senate hearings on the bill, the Michigan State Police produced evidence that Michigan will also continue receiving a federal highway grant worth approximately $50 million by keeping the BAC right where it is.
Here at the electronic criminal attorney blog, we have to admit that we agree with the Michigan Senate on this one. Best to err on the side of caution and safety where our public roads are concerned.
For those of us that have a relatively high tolerance for alcohol, just plan to have that night cap at home, when your car is parked safely in the garage.
