The legal limit of blood alcohol for drivers in the State of Michigan is .08. The Michigan Senate voted unanimously last week to keep this level at .08. Governor Snyder is expected to sign this bill, however if the legislature does not act, the level will revert to .10 on October 1, 2013. The Blood Alcohol Level (BAC) was reduced from .10 to .08 back in 2003. Studies have shown that the number of reported alcohol-related deaths in Michigan has reduced since the BAC was lowered to .08.
