The restaurant trade association cites research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that claims drivers older than 65 are "more impaired than a driver with a BAC (blood alcohol content) of .05."
The advertisement features photos of 11 Utah lawmakers over the age of 65 and asks, "If Utah legislators believed drivers at .05 should go to jails, should those over 65 be arrested for DWO (Driving While Older)?"
The lawmakers include:
Herbert signed a law on March 23 lowering the legal Blood Alcohol Content limit from .08 to .05, the lowest DUI limit in the nation.
Utah Senator Jim Dabakis D-Salt Lake tweeted his response to the ad on Tuesday stating, "I am appalled and outraged that they would put out this ad! Outraged!"
