Everyone knows how important it is not to drink and drive. Driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 will get you charged with DUI in all states.
Blood Alcohol Content (also known as BAC) shows how much alcohol is in your bloodstream. Alcohol affects the body and the mind in different ways at each level of intoxication.
While the most accurate measure of your BAC is a blood test drawn and analyzed by a medical professional, this BAC calculator can help you estimate your BAC based on the number of drinks that you have had.
The following calculator assumes that you have been drinking the same type of alcoholic beverages all night. If you have been mixing liquors with beer or anything else, please use the strongest drinks you had to determine your BAC. For this calculator, please round up the number of drinks you have had, rather than rounding down.
Please also keep in mind that the calculator assumes that your alcohol consumption has been spaced out consistently during the hours you entered. Your BAC reading will be inaccurate
if you drank a couple of drinks in the first 2 hours and then did several shots in the last hour.
If your drinks were stronger than normal (i.e., a normal shot of hard liquor is 1.5 ounces) the calculator will also be inaccurate. Again, it is better to round up your alcohol consumption than to round down.
This calculator is to be used as estimate only. Do not rely on it to make a decision as to whether it is safe for you to drive. It is better to be safe than sorry, so if you are worried that you are too impaired to drive, it is better to wait it out or to call a cab.
Results may also be off due to extenuating circumstances such as gender, percentage of body fat and any medications you may be taking
. With that in mind, it's imperative to contact an experienced DUI lawyer that can explain in detail the process of this and other impaired driving tests.
Please also remember that even if you have a BAC level lower than .08%, you can still be charged for driving while impaired if the alcohol affected your driving judgment in any way.
