Vancouver law cuts drunken-driving deaths in half

  • Aired: 01/05/2014
  • 06:19
  • Rating: NR
Correspondent William Brangham reports on recent changes to laws in British Columbia that have led to a dramatic decrease (roughly 50%) in alcohol-related fatalities over the past two years. BC officials ramped up penalties on drivers who tested at a much lower blood alcohol level (.05, as opposed to the current .08 legal standard) and authorized police to immediately impound cars.
