Enough is enough. The Star-Telegram has recently published several articles suggesting that minors are breaking the law if they drink and drive past the “legal limit” for adults. I have overlooked it in the past, attributing it to misinformed reporters.
But when the editorial director writes that a 16-year-old “got three-times-the-legal-limit drunk,” I must respond. Minors may not legally drive in the state of Texas with even one drop of alcohol in their system.
The “legal limit” for minors is zero. You are misserving the public by suggesting otherwise.
