It's Okay to Be Mad. DUI Laws in Montana and around the world.
Looking at this infographic from Dräger,
I like Utah's Blood Alcohol Limit
I like the 90 Days for a first DUI in Minnesota
I appreciate how Arizona is giving offenders the Ax
I think all insurance companies should increase premiums like they do in North Carolina for DUI Offenders.

Chile: DUI 1st Offense - 2 year Driver's License suspension. 2nd Offense - 5 year suspension, 3rd Offense - life-time suspension.
Colombia: DUI BAC level .02% - .039% (Montana is .08%) - Driver's License suspension for 1-year plus fines. BAC Level of .15% or grater = 10 year suspension
Poland: DUI BAC level is .02% = possible driver's license suspension of 3 years.
Germany: Zero BAC for beginners (less than two years experience or under 21 yoa). For cyclists, the limit is set at .16% Fines are based upon one's disposable income.
Netherlands: .02% BAC for drivers with less than 5 years experience
Albania: (Because I know you were hoping I would get to this little country on the Adriatic Sea) Their DUI BAC limit for everyone is .02%
Just so you know...one drink, even for a 240 pound male, will result in a .02% BAC. For most people, 2 or 3 drinks will put them above the "Legally Intoxicated" limit of .08% here in Montana.
