The legal Blood Alcohol Concentration limit in California could be lowered from 0.08 percent to 0.05 percent.
That’s if Assembly Bill 1713 — also known as Liam’s Law — passes.
That would make it a DUI charge for any driver found behind the wheel with a BAC that’s over 0.5 percent.
Co-authored by Senator Jerry Hill, Liam’s Law was named in honor of 15-month-old Liam, who was killed by a drunk driver in 2016.
Hill says there are 100 countries that currently have 0.05 BAC laws.
He also says the 0.05 level is recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board to reduce DUI deaths and injuries each year.
