Buzzed driving and uncertainty over BAC level

Sometimes, people take to the road when they are extremely intoxicated, and some of these reckless drivers may not care about their blood alcohol content (BAC) level at all. Other drivers, however, may be more concerned about whether they are over the legal limit or not, not only to avoid some of the repercussions associated with drunk driving charges but in order to protect their safety while behind the wheel. However, people who take to the road while they are buzzed may also be charged with driving drunk, facing serious consequences as well.

There are many factors to consider when it comes to buzzed driving. For example, some people who are inexperienced drinkers may not be familiar with how they react to alcohol and they may have difficulty judging how intoxicated they are or whether their BAC level is over the legal limit. Some may assume that they are able to drive even though their BAC level remains over the legal limit. For example, they may not be familiar with how long it takes for alcohol to be cleared from their system.

In other instances, drivers may assume that they are able to get behind the wheel because they do not feel drunk, even though their BAC level is still over the legal limit. For example, someone may have had a few drinks and some time may have passed, so they do not feel intoxicated. However, if they are pulled over by a law enforcement official, they may be charged with driving drunk after failing a test.
