The Pub / NTSB Recommends 0.05% BAC Limit
« on: May 15, 2013, 04:53:20 AM »
But I think going to .05% is just going to punish people who have had a beer or two with dinner and then drove their kid to his soccer game and got into a routine fender bender.

Proud to say I have never gotten a DUI, fwiw.

Gotta call you on your logic there.  I'm learning to bike in a city at the moment; the close "fender benders" have be scary enough to really ponder if I'm flirting with my own survival.  Scares the **** out of me when it happens.

Also, a "beer or two" implies 4.5%-5.5% when most beer enthusiasts are drinking 6%-11% (imo, of course).

+1 on no DUI.

Trust me, as a motorcyclist I know what you are talking about, but that is unrelated to my comment. I'm not implying that a beer or two with dinner could cause a fender bender. I'm saying that at the proposed .05% limit that you can be in a mild altercation that isn;t even your fault and go to jail for it when your motorskills are absolutely fine. So your not calling me on anything.

I do think that the DUI limit of .08% is legally fair and I do think it cuts down on people drinking and driving, so in that case it is a penalty that works. But I think going to .05% is just going to punish people who have had a beer or two with dinner and then drove their kid to his soccer game and got into a routine fender bender.

Agreed that there is no evidence either way. if you blood alc. limit is over the legal limit even if you are sitting at a stop sign and get rear ended by someone on their cell phone you get blamed for the accident.

Obviously when people do get drunk they are not as safe behind the wheel, but I don't think it is wise to assume that someone at .06 is necessarily "inebriated". And I'd need to see a more detailed analysis than what has been posited before I will change my stance.

I'm just not going to jump up and down with joy and indignation at the first mention of newly proposed law that restricts my freedoms in a way that seems over the top. I rarely go out and drink but at the rate it's going I won't even be able to test taste a beer at my own brewery and get behind the wheel.

So, what's to say the other half accidents were caused by inebriation? Accidents happen and people get killed all the time. I don't think it is safe to assume that someone with a .08 limit gets in an accident and kills someone that the alcohol was necessarily to blame.

You have to be really careful with tests like this. They are worded to make a case and a point but that point may not be the actual cause of the issue.

Have to agree with some of what Dixon is saying. The guy who has 2 or 3 beers isn't the guy out there killing people when he gets behind the wheel. Statistically the DUI laws we have in place now have worked. I don't think lowering the limit any further will lower the death rate any.

I don't worry much about drunk drivers much. Even though I know it is I problem it never kept me off the road.   But I have pretty much stopped riding my motorcycle because of cell phone talkers and texters. You want to implement some legislation go after these people.

You will make fine beer with the 2 row but if you want to make a Germam style wheat beer I'd recommend using German malt.

The ferulic acid rest is done around 111 for 15-30 mon and. Is supposed to increase the clove like phenols.

One thing you guys are missing is that smaller bottles have less beer in them.

I did the math and this checks out.

Whew. Thought I rolled the dice on that one. Thanks for the confirmation.

I could have worse role models. Like drew, for instance.
