States are considering whether to lower legal blood-alcohol levels from 0.08 to 0.05 in an effort to curb car accidents, CBS 13 in Sacramento reports. 

The National Transportation Safety Board is pushing for the change for the second time, saying the reduced limit would save nearly 1,000 lives.

“Alcohol remains the No. 1 killer on our roadways,” said Chris Cochran with the California Office of Traffic Safety.

All lowered states their legal limit to 0.08 in 2013.

“Individual states can change it if they want to, but there is an incentive not to. They’ll lose federal dollars,” he said.
