Colorado is already a .05 state so I'm not sure why they want to raise the ante from DWAI (driving while ability impaired) which starts at .05 to a DUI (driving under the influence) which starts at .075 and beyond. They will already arrest you at .05 so the new law proposal will do little, if anything, here as far as keeping more drinkers off the streets.

I suspect the alcohol classes , fines, etc. are a bit higher for a DUI, versus a DWAI, and I think the County, State, get a bit more coins in their coffers as a result. I went to jail here for blowing a .062 many years back. In most States at that time the cops would have thanked me for not driving under the influence and sent me on my merry way.
