Drunk Driving Prevention Act of 1993 - Directs the Secretary of Transportation to withhold from States failing to provide that a blood alcohol concentration level of 0.08 percent or greater while operating a motor vehicle shall be considered driving while intoxicated the following percentages of funds authorized for such States for Federal aid highway systems: (1) five percent for the first year of such failure; and (2) ten percent for each year after the first year. Allows certain funds released to the States for periods in excess of three years of such failure to be used by such States only to carry out programs approved by the Administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that prevent driving while intoxicated. Provides for the release of all funds previously withheld if the State eventually adopts the blood alcohol level requirement of 0.08 percent or greater.
