California's cluster of anti-DUI (driving under the influence) legislation in 1989 is noted. The combinatiion of the laws, aggressive enforcement and energetic public awareness campaigning has resulted in a high level of recognition of DUI as a serious problem. Other anti-DUI activities are also noted. Of the anti-DUI laws, the one with the greatest potential for diminishing the incidence of drunk driving is the one establishing the 0.8 threshold for drunk driving. A campaign to educate California's 20 million drivers concerning the impairment potential of low-level alcohol consumtion is also noted.
