Utah: Come for Vacation…. Leave on Probation

As you are likely aware, Utah lowered the threshold for a DUI down to .05 BAC (likely goes into effect at the end of 2018).

Looks like the American Beverage Institute’s ad in Idaho (and soon running in Nevada) may have had an impact on Governor Herbert. The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting “Gov. Gary Herbert has called on the Legislature to tweak the law, saying he would not oppose such things as creating lesser penalties for those arrested with a BAC between 0.05 and 0.079 than for those with higher levels, or perhaps waiting for other states to enact stricter limits first.”

Looks like the governor may have heard from some local businesses on the issue.

Here is the ad that has run in the Idaho Statesman warning people against going to Utah.

It is one of the most clever ads I have seen in a while. Too funny!
