Earlier this week, I wrote a post on how people can be arrested for DUI even when they have a BAC well below the legal limit of .08. The Washington Post article I blogged about sparked a considerable public outcry, and now the DC Council is rushing to revise the law. According to a follow-up article in the Washington Post:
D.C. Council members, swamped with irate calls and threats to boycott
D.C. bars and restaurants, introduced emergency legislation yesterday
that would override the police department’s controversial and
little-known zero-tolerance policy for drinking and driving.
