150 150 Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety

Advocates is leading a group of safety and public health organizations calling on members of the Hawaii State Senate to vote YES on Senate Bill (SB) 2384 which would lower the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit to .05 percent. Over 100 countries have adopted .05 percent or lower limits and while many have equal to or higher alcohol consumption rates as the United States, they have less deaths caused by drunk driving. In 2021, there were 94 fatalities on state roads, and 30 percent of those (28) involved drunk driving. It’s time to get this over the finish line. Read our call to action here.
