One day before New Year’s Eve, Utah will implement the strictest DUI law in the country
People in Utah may think twice about having that extra drink before driving home from their New Year's Eve parties. Starting December 30, the state will lower its blood-alcohol content limit to 0.05, the strictest DUI standard in the nation. The new law also states that anyone who "operates a motor vehicle in a negligent manner causing the death of another" and has a "blood alcohol concentration of .05 grams or greater" will have committed a criminal homicide, a felony.
