We all know that Utah has strict alcohol rules, but this one puts Utah #1 on being the most strict State on alcohol limits (.05), compared to other States that are still at 1.0 or .08.

I'm not sure where I stand on this. Obviously, DUI's are important to enforce, but should someone who is mildly or not even slightly impaired, (perhaps a glass or two of wine or beer), really be subject to these stiff penalties?

I’m in favor.... We can all drink responsibly and ensure we either have a DD or take an Uber. I’m sure there is a gray area between 0.05 and 0.10 where people would be just fine to drive.

They probably won't even be pulling people over unless they're driving as if they were impaired, so I can't see it really affecting people who aren't, even if they are technically over the limit.

It all depends on what "you" understand about 'mildly or slightly' impaired.

"You" wonder about that, I do not, so what is next?

What would be 'your' alcohol level after those two glasses of whatever?
If your level is below, you are ok.
If your level is higher then tough luck.

Mind interpreting this post for me? It makes very little sense.

1.0 BAC is lethal, so I imagine that was a typo for .10 BAC. However, the maximum is .08 BAC or less in every state.
