I've always questioned why, here in the US, the number 1 cause of death on the road is speeding yet speeders do so willingly, not under the influence,
and they don't have restrictions on their speed when busted, just a ticket, never criminalized unless it's like EGREGIOUSLY over the limit, and/or
kills somewhat whereas DUI's require a breathalyzer, often after the 1st offense, and is considered criminal.

I say make 0.0 BAC the norm for everyone, stop the judges' 3 martini lunches in their tracks too - because you know us common filthy drunks are an
easy scapegoat and a REAL moneymaker so they won't implement zero tolerance on that issue.
