The MADD poll shows that groups "can construct polls to prove anything they want," said Rick Berman, general counsel of the American Beverage Institute, which represents thousands of restaurants. "Clearly, drunk driving, though it is a problem, is not one of the biggest problems on the national roadways," Berman said. He said speeding and overly aggressive driving were more serious. The telephone survey of 1,000 Americans was conducted by the Market Facts research firm from Nov. 3-5. The margin of error is approximately plus or minus 3 percentage points. f V I 3 r IZZZlZZ" " " PREC0R 9.4s (Reg. '9899) S.

The Associated Press WASHINGTON Nearly seven in 10 Americans favor lowering the legal blood alcohol content level below the limits that prevail in most states, according to a holiday season survey released Friday by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. In addition, 53 percent of respondents ranked drunken drivers as the nation's No. 1 highway safety problem, the poll said. People who drive too fast ranked second at 19 percent. The survey, sponsored by the Allstate Insurance Co., is part of a push for legislation introduced in Congress that would require states to lower their legal blood alcohol content levels to 0.08 percent or risk losing some of their federal highway aid. The measure has not advanced out of House and Senate committees. "We are . . . calling on our government here in the nation's capital and in every state capital to take swift and decisive action to combat this major public health and safety problem," Katherine Prescott, MADD national president, said at a news conference. Thirty-four states and the District of Columbia enforce 0.1 percent blood alcohol levels, f hile 15 states already have the np 10 London j for 7 days and 6 nights, compliments o( CALL 511. : Laker Airways and the Montague Hotel!
