The "Speed" Limit

I was driving to the airport the other day and I saw the Secretary of State sign that appears to mimic a speed limit sign and reads:

0.08 "It's the limit"

Ok, folks ... this is WRONG.  It implies that if you drive under 0.08 you would be fine.  This is NOT the law, it has NEVER been the law.  You may be arrested for DUI if your blood alcohol is 0.06.  The 0.08 is not a limit.  It is just the blood alcohol level at which you will be presumed to be under the influence.

It would be a lot easier if the Secretary of State didn't have a graphic design artist attempt to explain in pictures and words the law.
