Last year 57 people in Saskatchewan lost their lives in impaired driving related accidents.
That number becomes even more significant when indicated that 46 per-cent of all fatal accidents involved impaired driving.
Joe Hargrave, Minister Responsible for SGI said while they are open to more rules and regulations to combat the issue, a zero tolerance law is something that would take time to implement.
“I just think it would be very difficult, we’d have to go out and sample it, what do people really think, what law enforcement thinks about it, and ask what groups like MADD think about zero tolerance,” Hargrave said.
In January the tolerance level was reduced from a blood alcohol content of .08 to .04.
