Government report suggests reducing legal blood-alcohol limit

About one-third of all traffic fatalities since 1982 are attributable to alcohol-impaired driving, according to a new report released by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The report suggests that the number of traffic fatalities may be reduced by changing the legal blood alcohol concentration percentage from .08 percent to .05 percent. Some Ohioans agree with the report's suggestion, while others express concerns.

Drunk driving accidents and the holiday season

The holiday season is now upon us here in Hamilton County. During the holiday season, many people enjoy getting together with friends and celebrating.

The deadly epidemic of impaired driving in the United States

With the last holiday of the summer, Labor Day, approaching quickly, now is a good time to take a look at the deadly effects of drunk driving in the United States and how it affects millions of Americans each year.

Intoxicated driver causes multi-car crash in Cincinnati

It seems like every week drivers who should not be out on the road are hitting the streets and jeopardizing the safety of not only themselves and other passengers in their car, but anyone else out on or near the roads. Such was the case recently when a driver under the influence of heroin was traveling on southbound Interstate 75 near the Western Hills Viaduct in Cincinnati, Ohio, and crashed into a semi-truck as well as another vehicle.

Ohio judge orders drunk drivers to install ridesharing apps

While most people know that drunk driving is dangerous and against the law, there will always be those who think they are above the law or even that they are better drivers after having a few drinks, and will drive while intoxicated. Unfortunately, even if a person is charged with drunk driving, many will continue to drive drunk in the future, causing accidents that injure or kill others.

How does alcohol affect an Ohioan's ability to drive?

This past Memorial Day weekend, many people may have drank at a backyard barbecue, the beach, a neighborhood block party or another celebration ushering in the unofficial beginning of summer.

Alcohol use affects all these abilities.

Drugged driving is a growing concern in Ohio

Most people are aware of the dangers that driving under the influence of alcohol presents. They know that alcohol can alter a person's reaction time, perception and motor control, all of which could lead to drunk driving accidents. However, a growing concern in Ohio is the number of people who drive while under the influence of drugs.

Tougher drunk driving laws in Ohio effective as of April 4

A law has recently taken effect that aims to prevent incidents of drunk driving. Known as "Annie's Law," the new law institutes harsher penalties for those convicted of drunk driving and would also institute a new system affecting those who are convicted of drunk driving a second time or more. The law is named after a woman who passed away after being struck by a repeat drunk driver. The law went into effect April 4.
