Utah lawmakers voted to lower the legal limit for a driver’s blood-alcohol concentration from 0.08 to 0.05. If the Governor signs the bill, it would go into effect December 30, 2018. Compared to Texas, this is significantly different. In Texas a person can be convicted of DWI if they have lost the normal use of their mental or physical faculties, or have a blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, or 0.08 or greater.
Utah would have the toughest drunk-driving laws in the USA.
This means a person could have as little as one drink and wind up behind bars.
These changing laws make it more important than ever to hire the best Houston DWI lawyer. Breath tests are not always right, there are many factors that can cause a breath testing machine to spit out a number that is just not accurate.
