New 0.08% DUI limit to take effect Saturday
Officials and bar owners say they are prepared for stiffer limit
After over a year of planning, the state of Arizona is lowering the legal DUI limit beginning Labor Day weekend.
As of 12:01 a.m. Saturday, the legal blood alcohol content for drivers will decrease from 0.10 percent to 0.08 percent. The drop increases the chances of an arrest for those who choose to drink and drive and a fine for the establishment that chooses to serve them.
Campus health officials say students who drink and drive will have to drink less or quit drinking earlier in order to avoid a law violation and stiff consequences.
