Puerto Rico has adopted one of the world’s toughest legal limits for drunk driving by young adults.

Gov. Luis Fortuno signed legislation Tuesday that lowers the blood alcohol limit for drivers ages 18 to 20 to .02 percent from the standard .08 percent that applies to all other drivers on the U.S. island.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving has said the .02 percent standard is lower than any U.S. state. Sweden has had .02 percent limit for all drivers since 1990.

Some senators criticized the measure, saying the island instead should have raised legal drinking age to 21 from 18 as a way to curb drunk driving.

    Hey I was just thinking that you would probably get more readers if you interviewed controversial people for your website.

    Hello there! I wonder if u can perhaps help me? I brand-new to the net and have just set up my own brand-new web site, but i dont know how to do the design and and all that stuff. I discovered that word press is good for this and you can simply download theme’s. I actually love your theme and was wondering if you could let me know where you got your theme, or if it is a custom-made one? Do also maybe know of any more places to get great themes? Thank you for the assistance!
