As alcohol levels rise in a person’s system, the adverse effects on the central nervous system increase. Alcohol is absorbed directly through the walls of the stomach and small intestine. Then it passes into the bloodstream, accumulating until the liver metabolizes it. The weight of the alcohol in a specific volume of blood measures a person’s alcohol level. This is called Blood Alcohol Concentration, or BAC. At a BAC of .08 grams of alcohol per deciliter (g/dL) of blood, crash risk increases exponentially. Because of this risk, it’s illegal in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia. And Puerto Rico to drive with a BAC of .08. Or higher, except in Utah, where the BAC limit is .05.
However, even a tiny amount of alcohol can affect driving ability. In 2020, there were 2,041 people killed in alcohol-related crashes where a driver had a BAC of .01 to .07 g/dL.
BAC is measured with a breathalyzer, a device that measures the amount of alcohol in a driver’s breath, or a blood test.
