Buzz Kills: No Amount of Alcohol is Safe to Drive

In California, the legal blood-alcohol limit may be 0.08 percent, but no amount of alcohol is safe for driving, according to a UCSD study led by sociologist David Phillips and published in the journal Addiction. The study found that blood-alcohol levels well below the legal limit are associated with severe injury and even death.

As reported by Science Daily today, “Accidents are 36.6 percent more severe even when alcohol was barely detectable in a driver’s blood” — even as low as 0.01 percent. “Compared with sober drivers, buzzed drivers are more likely to speed, more likely to be improperly seat-belted and more likely to drive the striking vehicle, all of which are associated with greater severity.”
