Scotland Lowers Drinking and Driving Limit to .01. Will U.S. or Idaho Follow?

I recently returned from Scotland where I learned that the government has reduced the legal drinking and driving limit to what is essentially .01, much lower than the .08 limit in most U.S. states, including Idaho, and lower than England's current limit. The change reduces the legal limit allowed in a blood test from 80mg to 50mg per 100ml of blood. With the change, the Scottish government expects to see a reduction in alcohol-related deaths and serious injuries.
