I think so.
In Illinois, the Blood Alcohol Level (BLA) is .08. Those that drink more often will be affected very little with .08. While light drinkers, may be on their deathbed at .08. I can understand that it’s good to set standards for drunk driving, but everyone feels physically incapable at different points, right?
I’ve taken numerous Breathalyzer tests at party’s, bars and such and while pulling of .08, .10 and .18’s, overall, I don’t feel that drunk to where I can’t drive. I understand that when drinking judgement is the first to go, but I still believe that everybody’s different. I also believe a lot of people have gotten a bad rap in the system because .08 was the limit, even though they were not that bad off to drive.
I propose that if you’re a drinker, you should be able to take the driver’s test twice. Once sober, then soon after, another while drunk (Don’t laugh!). If you’re unable to drive at .08, that’s the code that’s put on your license, and you’ll go through the normal court BS. Basically, a personalized BLA limit on your license. If you get plastered on a .04, then that’s what you get on a DL.
Please try not to be too MADD at me.
