"Vancouver law cuts drunken-driving deaths in half" PBS Newshour 1/5/2014


SUMMARY:  New drunken-driving laws in British Columbia have led to a dramatic decrease (roughly 50%).  Officials ramped up penalties on drivers who tested at a lower blood alcohol level (.05, as opposed to the current .08 legal standard) and authorized police to immediately impound cars.
