The National Transportation Safety Board voted Tuesday to recommend that all 50 states lower the legal limits for drinking and driving.
The NTSB recommends dropping that level from 0.08% to 0.05%.
Nearly 10,000 people are killed in drinking and driving accidents every year, and the NTSB says its new proposal could save up to 800 lives every year.
The NTSB’s vote is just a recommendation and doesn’t carry any weight.
The NTSB is also suggesting tougher penalties for first time and repeat offenders.
