The National Transportation Safety Board has voted to urge the states drop the blood alcohol level necessary for a driving while intoxicated violation from .08 to .05. This means two to three drinks in an hour for a 180-pound man, versus about four.

The change would save lives, the NTSB believes.

It will be hard to persuade the states to adopt the change.
