Research Suggests DUI Laws Discriminate Against Women

Comments (0)

Research conducted at University School of Medicine in Italy concludes women have a lower amount of the enzyme that breaks down alcohol in their stomach.  This suggests women reach the same blood alcohol level after consuming half as much alcohol as men which can lead to false arrests in DUI cases. 

Furthermore, a study in the Analytical Toxicology journal concludes women have lower partition ratios than men.  Such difference can lead to higher blood alcohol readings on breath machines even when blood alcohol levels are the same.
