BAC or Blood Alcohol Content is simply defined as the amount of alcohol in your system.
In December of 2018 Utah will become the first state to implement a .05 BAC law for impaired driving. Utah was also the first state to implement a .08 BAC.
For now the other 49 states will stay at .08 BAC but other states have debated this and will continue to do so. It is only a matter of time before other states follow this lead.
Do you have any idea how many drinks in an hour it takes to be over .05 BAC? Wouldn't it be good to know that every time you have more than two drinks within an hours span you are over .05 BAC?
For some people it only takes two drinks in an hours span to reach a .05 BAC and then one drink per hour afterwards to maintain a .05 BAC. Some people it might be three drinks in the first hour and one drink per hour afterwards to maintain that.
It's really does not take that many drinks to reach that level of BAC.
Wouldn't it be good to know that ahead of time?
No one wants to drive impaired or drunk and no one wants impaired or drunk drivers on the road. No one really sets out to drive impaired. You only had a few beers during that round of golf or a few glasses of wine at that get together.
You're always responsible. You would never drive drunk or impaired but, do you know your BAC?
