On Sunday, Utah will implement the nation’s strictest drunk driving law when it comes to a driver’s blood-alcohol content.

The state is moving from .08 as the minimum level for impaired driving down to a .05. The law was actually passed a couple of years ago but had a delayed implementation.

So why is Utah doing that and how big a difference could the change make?

To talk about that, Robert Gehrke, news columnist for The Salt Lake Tribune, joined The Show.
