The National Transportation Safety Board has voted to recommend to states that they reduce the blood-alcohol content that constitutes drunk driving, according to NBC News.

Every state now has a set BAC level of .08, reflecting the percentage of alcohol, by volume, in the blood. If drivers have a BAC level of .08 or above, they can be arrested and charged.

The NTSB recommends dropping that to a BAC level of .05.

The last move from .10 to .08 BAC levels took 21 years for each state to implement.
