Blood Alcohol Concentration

Blood Alcohol Concentration Level and DUI

Blood alcohol concentration or BAC is the percentage of alcohol in one’s blood stream. This is usually expressed in the form of a percentage and used to determine one’s level of intoxication after the consumption of any amount of alcohol. When a law enforcement officer suspect a person of drinking and driving they may subject the suspect to field sobriety tests in order to further determine the level of impairment. However, these types of on-the-spot tests do not accurately measure a person’s BAC, so the results cannot accurately determine intoxication.

Generally, a BAC of .08% or more is enough to arrest a person for DUI. However, there is no one method that will definitively determine a person’s BAC level since everyone’s body reacts differently to the number of drinks it takes to show impairment. DUI blood tests that reflect a person’s blood alcohol concentration are the most accurate way to find an individual’s level of impairment, and therefore they are often used as factual evidence in court. If you or someone you know has been charged with driving under the influence it is imperative to seek the help of a San Diego DUI lawyer as soon as possible.
