House committee votes to keep Michigan's blood-alcohol limit the same

The Michigan State Police, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and other groups support maintaining the current standard.
LANSING -- The state House Criminal Justice Committee voted unanimously Wednesday to keep Michigan's drunken-driving blood-alcohol level at 0.08%. If the Legislature doesn't act, the level will revert to 0.10% on Oct. 1. In Michigan, a blood-alcohol level of 0.08% is considered drunken driving.

State legislators to vote on drunk driving limit

Members of Mothers Against Drunk Driving are trying to keep the Michigan drunk driving limit from increasing. The state lowered the limit to 0.08% ten years ago, but the law included a provision that would change the limit back to 0.10% this year.
LANSING - It's a no-brainer, say police, judges and Mothers Against Drunk Driving. They're advocating for the state to keep its drunken driving limit at 0.08% - which appears likely. But the Legislature has to take action before Oct. 1 or else the limit will return to 0.10%.
