    New research from the University of California, San Diego, reveals that even minimal drinking and driving is a dangerous combination and result in more accidents then sober drivers.

    A new study from the University of California, San Diego, reveals that even “minimally buzzed” drivers cause more accidents than sober drivers.   In studying accidents, these researchers looked at drivers with a BAC of .01 to .07%, under the legal .08 limit.  Even with the lowest of .01% BAC, drivers were 46% more likely to be “officially and solely” to blame by accident investigators.  Researchers say there is no safe combination of drinking and driving and that laws should reflect what the research shows.
