Is it time to lower Canada’s legal limit?
Check out this article about how the federal Justice Minister recently floated the idea with her provincial and territorial counterparts about lowering Canada’s legal alcohol limit for drivers from 0.08 to 0.05. While such a move would be controversial, recent studies have shown that a blood-alcohol content level of 0.05 doubles a driver’s risk of a crash. A number of countries, including Ireland, have already lowered their limits to 0.05 and seen drunk driving fatalities fall as a result.

The OPP says that 2016 will likely have been the first time since 2009 when distracted driving deaths doubled impaired driving deaths.
