Utah now has the toughest DUI law in the nation and locals are urged to take note. As of December 30th, the legal blood alcohol concentration to drive in the
state of Utah
has gone from .08 to .05 percent. The change was passed during the 2017 legislature and has just been waiting for December 30th, 2018, to go into effect. Officials have commented that the change doesn’t change the way officers evaluate drivers for impairment. “As far as the Utah Highway Patrol is concerned, it will be business as usual,” shares Colonel Michael Rapich, “and troopers will not change their behavior when evaluating a driver to determine if he or she is impaired.” As always, there will be extra patrols out locally for DUI enforcement as part of the New Year’s holiday. Vernal City Assistant Police Chief Keith Campbell encourages all to celebrate the New Year in a responsible manner. “Please don’t drive impaired,” shares Campbell.
