President Bill Clinton's signing of a bill earlier this week that will set the national standard for drunken driving to a .08 percent blood-alcohol content could possibly result in more campus DUI arrests, a UA police official said yesterday.

UAPD Sgt. Michael Smith said that lowering the state's standard for drunken driving could possibly lead to more arrests - however, officers' patrol habits will be unaffected because they do not know a driver's intoxication level when they pull the person over, he said.

"Typically, when an officer makes a stop, it's for erratic driving, and that won't change," Smith said.
