There's mixed reaction in Georgia to a proposal from a federal agency's call for states to lower their blood-alcohol limits from drivers. The National Transportation and Safety Board made waves with its call for a 0.05 limit, down from the 0.08 that has become standard.
Independent Representative Rusty Kidd of Milledgeville is supporting a bill that would clear a drunken driving offense if the convicted person does not have any other driving offenses for five years. Kidd is not condoning driving while intoxicated. But he says he believes it is important to change the DUI laws to give drivers a second chance.
