Intoxicated driving has become a real problem in American and cops aren’t being as lenient as they once were. My Grandfather once told me of a time he was pulled over and the cop followed him home to make sure he was safe. Although law enforcers are concerned for our overall safety, this kind of thing would never happen nowadays. That’s why it’s imperative to have tools available so we can take extra precautions before driving impaired. Thankfully with all the advancements in technology, there are several ways to check your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) levels.

Calculators have been specifically developed for the sole purpose of checking your level of intoxication by estimating your BAC level. In turn, this could help you to make one of the smartest decisions of your life, and in all actuality could save multiple lives.
Failure to use cautionary strategies when consuming alcohol could potentially cause you to lose complete control of a variety of aspects in your life. You could literally lose it all because of this legal poison. Most businesses don’t care what the reason for your DUI is, and therefore won’t hesitate in letting you go once you’ve received a DUI /OVI offense. It could prove to be quite difficult to find employment after driving under the influence of alcohol, and so many of the things you’ve worked incredibly hard to achieve could be taken away, just like that.

Several factors that can affect your BAC:

  • Genetics
  • Gender
  • Weight
  • Age
  • If You’ve Eaten
  • What You’ve Eaten
  • How Much You’ve Eaten
  • Genetics
  • Overall Tolerance

Any one of these variants can elevate a person’s BAC level. Every person processes alcohol differently, so it’s important to keep all of these facts in mind the next time you go out for a wild night of drinking.

The Blood Alcohol Level Calculator takes you through a series of questions in hopes of providing you a fairly accurate reading of your BAC level.

  1. Type in your age, weight, and gender.
  2. Enter how long you’ve been drinking alcohol.
  3. Enter how many glasses of water you’ve drunk in that time.
  4. Press Next.
  5. Slide the bars to enter the number shots, cocktails, beers, and glasses of wine you have drank.
  6. Select the kind of alcoholic beverages you had.
  7. Press Next to calculate your BAC.

It doesn’t take much at all to put you dangerously close to the illegal reading of .08%. It takes approximately 2-3 alcoholic beverages consumed within 60 minutes on average to impair cognitive comprehension past the limits of safety. In which, at this point in time, you become extremely dangerous to yourself and anyone who happens to be within your radius.
As stated before, everyone’s BAC level is going to differ depending on the situation and multiple genetic factors. This is why it could prove imperative to purchase an inexpensive personal Breathalyzer. It’s an incredibly small price to pay for your safety and the safety of those around you.
