ZERO TOLERANCE ENFORCEMENT VARIES WITH LAWS AND PRACTICES AMONG U.S. STATES
All states now have zero tolerance laws prohibiting people younger than 21 from driving with any positive blood alcohol concentration (BAC). Congress made zero tolerance a national standard in 1995, passing a law to withhold highway funds from states that did not comply by October 1, 1998. The article looks at the differences in all 50 states and identified 5 - California, Michigan, New Mexico, New York, and Virginia - with laws that appear to differ in how easily they can be enforced.
