Colorado Lowers Blood Alcohol Limit for DUI

The federal government wants all the states in the US to have a blood-alcohol limit no higher than .08 for drunk driving. To this end, the feds dusted off the approach they used to implement an effectively national drinking age of 21: states that do not fall in line lose tons of highway funds. Colorado couldn't take the pressure; on Wednesday, the Colorado legislature passed a law that will lower the legal blood-alcohol limit from .10 to .08.
