Drunk Driving Must Be Stopped 

Yet another drunk driver OVI has caused injury. This is against the back drop of the NHTSA calling for states to lower the legal BAC .05 %. In Ohio for adults it currently stands at .08%  Some people are up in arms. But I support this effort along with many others. Although many are against this. In fact why not go to zero tolerance. No, it will never happen because our society is too ingrained with the booze mentality. 

The entertainment and eating and drinking establishments would howl. Hey we stopped smoking in those places. Do you really have to drink to have a good time? If that is the case get a designated driver or hire a limo. I'm not talking about stopping drinking booze. Just do not get behind the wheel if you are drinking.
