Zero Tolerance for all Drivers Proposed in OK

By admin

Oklahoma State Rep. Harold Wright believes DUI laws need to get tough to cut down on drunken driving deaths. The Republican lawmakers from Weatherford, Okla. wants zero tolerance laws for DUI.

People enjoying glass of wine at dinner or a bottle of beer after work could wind up in jail.

Oklahoma DUI laws currently have the legal blood alcohol limit for driving at .08%. Police also have the right to detain a driver suspected of DUI, no matter what the blood alcohol level.

The proposed legislation will be studied and discussed this fall.
