Michigan’s BAC Level Limit to Stay at .08
If you are a drinker this news might make you a little more conscious about the next time you go to the bar. According to WILX, The Michigan Legislature has approved bills that will continue the state's 0.08 blood-alcohol content limit (BAC) for drunken driving until 2021.
The limit was going to move up to .10 in October of 2018 but will be staying at .08 after Governor Synder acted and it now not put federal funding at risk. Back in 2003, the Michigan Legislators moved the BAC limit to .08 and have a note in the law to look at moving it up to 0.10 unless lawmakers edit the law again. Lawmakers have said that moving the BAC limit up to 0.10 would risk lives and make the roads more dangerous.
