Blood Alcohol Science

Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) refers to the amount of alcohol within a person’s bloodstream.  A great deal of attention is paid to blood alcohol concentration and how it affects the body physiologically.   When a person’s blood supply becomes too saturated with alcohol, it will affect their ability to drive in many ways.  First and foremost, it will impair their ability to perform divided-attention tasks, which includes maintaining speed, reacting to other drivers, following traffic lights and road signs, merging lanes, etc.  

In any DUI case, the prosecution will build their case around the driver’s blood alcohol concentration.  However, it’s important to take into account that alcohol affects every person differently, and what may cause one person to reach a BAC of .08 may not have the same effect on someone else.   There are a number of factors to take into consideration when determining how alcohol affects someone, such as:

  • How quickly the alcohol is absorbed into the body
  • How much time has passed since alcohol was consumed
  • How the alcohol is distributed throughout the body
  • How much the person weighs, as well as their body structure and fat composition
  • If the person ate any food
  • If the person has taken any medication
  • The person’s gender.  Women tend to absorb alcohol more quickly than men.
  • The person’s overall tolerance to alcohol
