Avoid a Tempe DUI Arrest by Using a BAC Calculator
You know you should never drink and drive, but so many people who are arrested for a DUI in Tempe for being over the legal limit say they felt “ok to drive.” Don’t risk a Tempe drunk driving arrest. Learn how to calculate your approximate blood alcohol content (BAC) before you leave the party.
For those of you who aren’t interested in the math, there are apps available for both the iPhone and Android that will calculate your BAC for you! Check your app store for BAC calculators, and impress everyone at the party. There are also multiple websites that offer free BAC calculators for you to use.
For these calculators to work, you’ll probably need to know:
- The standard size of what you were drinking. For example, hard liquor is usually about 40% alcohol and the size of a standard drink is a 1-ounce shot.
- How much you drank over what length of time. The calculator will subtract .15 for each hour that passes after your first drink.
- Your weight and gender (if you’re too drunk to remember, DON’T DRIVE). BAC calculations use the water content of your body, and the best predictor is your gender and weight.
Plug these numbers into the calculator, and you’ll have an approximation of your BAC at the given time. You’ll also find out if you’re likely to be over the legal limit of .08.
