Piece on NBC "News" tonight about a new study's recommendations to reduce drunk driving. As can be expected from the US, it's all about increasing punishment:

-lower the blood alcohol limit from 0.08 to 0.05, so more people are punished for driving impaired.

-raise taxes on alcohol, so even people who do not drive impaired are punished.

-restrict availability of alcohol, so even people who do not drive impaired are punished.
