How Many Drinks to Be Over the Limit?
Blood alcohol content can be tricky to calculate, but it is important to understand its determining factors. While various numbers are thrown around, in Maryland a BAC of .08 means that a person is legally impaired and can be convicted of a DUI.
How Much Is Too Much?
There is no definitive way to calculate what one’s BAC will be after a given number of drinks. While many people try to present it as a simple math problem that combines drinks with an amount of time, this is an unreliable method. Even if two people drink an identical amount over the same period, they may have vastly different BACs. Age, gender, ethnicity, weight, and height can all be determining factors.
BAC boils down to the body chemistry of the individual involved. Every person’s body will process alcohol at different rates, and this means that each person must learn for himself or herself how they handle alcohol. Caution is the wisest policy, particularly when driving is involved.
