Drinking and driving is both dangerous and illegal. In Nebraska in 2011 alone, there were over 1,800 alcohol-related crashes which injured 1,185 people and killed 51 victims, according to the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety. In order to limit injuries and fatalities, the state of Nebraska added new DUI laws that increase penalties for drinking under the influence. Unfortunately, thousands of drunk drivers take to the road each year, which causes serious injuries and losses to countless innocent victims.
In the state of Nebraska, it is illegal for people 21 and older to drive with a blood alcohol content (BAC) that is .08% or above, for those under 21 to drive with a BAC of .02% or higher, and for commercial drivers to operate their vehicles with a BAC .04% or higher.
