BAC Information – How Many Drinks Take Your Blood Alcohol Over the Limit

drunk meterWhether you are going out for after work drinks, having dinner with family & friends or going out for a night on the town, the most important thing to consider is ensuring that you get home safely.  If you are in a group, you should always assign a designated driver.

While no alcohol is safest when getting behind the wheel, you can guesstimate your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) after 1 or 2 drinks depending on several factors.

Some of the factors that might affect a person’s BAC include:

  • body size
  • gender
  • physical condition
  • what they have had to eat
  • how much sleep they have had
  • what medications they are taking
  • the actual alcohol content of their “drink”

The problem many people may have is after a couple of drinks, their judgement becomes impaired and they may feel they are fine to drive when actually they are over the legal limit.  This can be especially true for small women who may not have had much to eat.  So be sure when you are out that not only you are responsible about your alcohol intake if you will be getting behind the wheel, but also keep an eye out for friends who may not realize they have crossed the line of inebriation.
