Utah Senator Day Drinks to Prove .05 Percent DUI Law is Too Low

Utah’s Weirdness Factor Increases

Senator Jim Dabakis had two mimosas in the morning and tested his blood alcohol content before presenting a bill at the Capitol proposing to delay Utah’s .05 percent DUI law.

Speaking to the Senate Transportation, Public Utilities, Energy and Technology Standing Committee Senator Dabakis stated, “My entire presentation has been at .05. You might say, ‘Well, that’s evidence of why we want the law. Look at him.’ I’m at .05, and I feel perfectly fine.”

Senator Dabakis did admit that he didn’t drink and drive to prove his point even further. He had an intern drive him to the capitol.

His presentation was on SB210, which would delay Utah’s law setting the legal blood alcohol content for driving at .05 percent until three other states have passed it. The .05 law is scheduled to take effect Dec. 30.

“It doesn’t make sense. It puts Utah in a very bad light. We ought not be leading the way on this issue”

Dabakis said the law magnifies Utah’s “weirdness factor” on alcohol laws and would drive away tourists and businesses.
